Wake County Superintendent Tony Tata is featured in a Philadelphia Inquirer article looking at the rise of non-traditional educators as superintendents.
As noted in today's Inquirer, officials in New Jersey and Pennsylvania are looking at changing requirements that would make it easier for non-traditional educators to become school chiefs in school districts in their states. To highlight this national trend, the Inquirer talked with Tata and how he's turning around some of his doubters.
The article notes how Tata is in communication with the community, as he was when he oversaw troop deployments to Afghanistan. He is looking and listening.
