In just three months, 8 North Texas superintendents announce they are leaving, by Jay Wallis (WFAA)

Wow! This is major! Without a doubt, being a school leader in the current anti-equity and inclusion political climate in the throes of a seemingly never-ending pandemic has gotta' make this job one of the toughest jobs out there. 

Every case is also unique, to be sure. Sounds like this could be a good dissertation.

I'm nevertheless saddened to see these leaders who—when added up altogether—literally have hundreds of years of experience in education. This creates a gaping loss for the thousands of students in their care and to the state of Texas, as a whole. I kid you not. These are very big shoes to fill.

Lot's of teachers are leaving the profession, as well. 

I don't know about you, but when I read news like this, it all feels like a slow-moving train wreck. Children of what I term, the "COVID Generation," will definitely be impacted. What a crisis. Yet, as we know, with every crisis there's an opportunity out of which we can envision something grand and hopeful.

I think we should all thank these superintendents for their service and wish them the best. If you or your children are in an impacted school district, I encourage you to get involved and to do so in a good spirit, and with a good and positive intention. Our schools and districts are under way too much stress right now.
