Interaction in the School

This is the person held responsible for operating the kind of school the public (or more exactly,’ different arid often conflicting-parts. of the public), demands. At the antimatter the superintendent’s regarded. those’ within the system as fitter’ protector, against, unreasonable or unprofessional demands by’ outsiders and as., ‘. the person’ who achieves -harmony among victim groups within the school.
