I have to admit that I’m not all that familiar with how Mayor Bloomberg has dealt with public schools in New York City.
However, there’s a great post in today’s NYC Public School Parents blog titled Lessons For Michael Bloomberg On President’s Day that provides an excellent summary of George Washington’s leadership style. The post’s writer, David Bloomfield, then contrasts that with how Mayor Bloomberg acts in school matters. The Mayor doesn’t come across favorably.
But whether or not you know much about what’s going on in New York City, or even if you support Bloomberg, the summary of Washington’s leadership style is grist for an engaging lesson and student discussion.
And, because of that, I’m adding the post to The Best Resources About President’s Day.
