In response to the post, “Some Concerns,” a reader writes:Sean, I did not realize you were “recruiting.” I’m not sure what this person is “disturbed” about? Is it following directions as prescribed by the school board and superintendent, or is it change? The comment sounds bitter and the post goes in a lot of directions. Unfortunately, as you wrote, we do not know how the statement was presented or the context of the discussion, so we are left with conjecture. Personally, I become disturbed when I think about the number of students not graduating, or teenage pregnancy, or failing schools. Thanks for having your site up. Hopefully this disturbed person finds some peace after venting to the LYS readers. SC Response Change is tough, even when we know it is for the best. Either the writer had the best of intentions in submitting the comment or was venting. I don’t know which, but both are valid. A legitimate question requires a legitimate response. A venting episode hopefully lets that person get it out of their system and reminds the rest of us that sometimes we just need to let people have their say and then start coaching again. What I found interesting is that after I published the post, I received a couple of phone calls saying that they agreed with what I wrote and three people unsubscribed from the blog. That’s the way it is supposed to work in the arena of “Best Idea Wins.” Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
