What’s the first thing most principals consider before making decisions that affect our schools? One would hope it would be the best way to better our children’s education, but according to Vincent Ferradino, executive director of the National Association of Elementary School Principals, it’s not. Thanks to the trial lawyers, principals have to think about lawsuits first.
