Letter to the editor: Miller's same old plan won't work these days

Bozeman School Superintendent Kirk Miller's letter to the community (Monday, Nov. 27), nearly identical to the other two he has penned in the past year, focused entirely on process and said nothing concrete about what's actually happening in our schools. The essence of all three letters seems to be that as taxpayers and community members we should be proud of his planning process, the often referred to Long Range Strategic Plan, and go online and see how great it is. So I did.

Like many strategic plans inspired by the management guru of the moment, it's an underwhelming fill-in-the-blank template. To its credit, the plan captures lofty ambitions well, but stumbles in providing an actual road-map of how our schools are meeting specific, concrete, measurable goals - at least ones I could follow. With the exception of the new "balanced score-card," the plan and its status reports, like Dr. Miller's letters, are filled with jargon and platitudes.
