A good leader is not only charged with inspiring those under him to work to their fullest potential, he’s also responsible for improving the system as a whole. George Leef, in Oklahoma’s Edmond Sun, gives Oklahomans an idea of what they should look for in a new chancellor of higher education. “[T]he most crucial task facing the next chancellor,” said George, “is to promote a system that will assess educational value added.” When it comes to higher education, sometimes the best policy for assessing its necessity is to see it in the context of education as a whole. From this vantage point, higher education is of less value than core education at an early age. This, according to a book reviewed by George in the Clarion Call, and picked up by EducationNews.org.
