The time has come for Supt. Wormstadt to leave

The time has come for Supt. Wormstadt to leave
When one holds oneself of greater import than the institution sought to be served, then it is time for the one to leave that institution.
The time has come for Superintendent Wayne Wormstadt to resign from the Windom School District. It is also time for those school board members who refuse to hold him accountable to follow him out of the door.
I do not ask whether High School Principal Lance Northey was actually guilty of the infraction charged, as that point is not relevant to whether Wormstadt has failed the school. The situation with Northey is merely yet another in an ever growing list of serious issues borne from the failure of sound judgment on the part of Wormstadt.
Wormstadt hired Northey as he has others who have caused scandal at the district. Ultimately the staff, the taxpayers and students have paid the dear price of his failures.
The scandals are poor for the morale of the staff and set an extremely poor example for the students. From personal experience, I have observed that Wormstadt is ineffectual in communicating goals and standards, fails to avert crises before these happen and fails to obtain the best of his charge by encouragement and support rather than criticism and punishment of infractions.
He is not building an institution that best serves the students, he is attempting to build a legacy to himself. He has cost the school enough; it is time for him to go.
