The superintendent is at the top. Traditionally, the position included an unspoken but universally understood obligation to project an independent, all-knowing and fully in charge image. Somehow, just sitting in the chair evoked an uncanny realization that to ask for advice or any kind of help, particularly from an immediate predecessor, was to risk shame and perhaps even dire consequences. Today is different. Today the smart money is on shrugging off foolish thinking in favor of realizing the advantages of leveraging collective knowledge to achieve greater success.
