Candidates for Superintendents' Academy announced

Fourteen leaders, including high-ranking military officers, government officials and education executives, have been selected to participate in a training program to become high-level administrators in urban school systems.

The Broad Superintendents Academy is a 10-month executive management training program run by the Broad Center for the Management of School Systems. The center says that the academy is the only program in the nation that recruits and trains non-traditional superintendent candidates as well as career educators.

The 2010 class of candidates — nine men and five women — include three generals and one colonel in the U.S. Army, the head of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, the chief executive officer of the transit system in the Cincinnati area, and several people already serving as school district administrators around the country.
