Open Access Graduate Research Paper


School administrators--Attitudes; Teacher-administrator relationships; Student-administrator relationships;


I remember when my morn was driving me to my first day of preschool. I asked her if she would drive me to school when I went to the University of Northern Iowa too? I was going to be a teacher, and I didn't want to go alone. That was about twenty years ago, and my morn kept her promise. I did attend the University of Northern Iowa; I did become a teacher, and my mom did take me for my first day of orientation.

Education is an American value that I feel is one of the most important ideas our Founding Fathers gave us. American education has plenty of challenges and is far from perfect, but I believe it is the best in the world. We may not always have the highest test scores or produce the most engineers, but our country does value education so much it is illegal not to send a child to school. Every child deserves the chance to achieve their dreams and do what they want with their lives.
