Famous quotes with School superintendent

  • The Southern school superintendent is a kind of remote deity who breathes the purer air of Mount Parnassus.

He hires and fires, manipulates the board of education, handles a staggering amount of money, and maintains the precarious existence of the status quo.
    Pat Conroy
