Daniel Domenech // Executive Director // AASA, The School Superintendents Association
Our guest Daniel Domenech joins us from the American Association of School Administrators. He has been the Executive Director AASA since 2008 and a member since 1979. Known as the “School Superintendents Association,” AASA represents 13,658 administrators who manage every facet of the school system from the details of the classroom to the grounds of the schools. 98% of school superintendents used to be teachers so they have an intimate understanding of the workings of the classroom and the needs of students, teachers, and parents and bring that to the running of the school system. While all superintendents manage a tremendous workload with each school, the size of school districts vary widely and the school systems in Virginia and Maryland are some of the largest. Join us to learn more about the workings of school systems, a discussion of teacher vs baseball player pay, and moving away from No Child Left Behind.
