Local Improvement Infrastructure - Elaine Woo

I like Elaine's idea for a Local Improvement Infrastructure. In sveral differnt threads of this conference we see the difficulties caused by rapid turnover, especially among key district leaders. Could districts actually set up some sort of long lasting process, wherein leaders of s systemic change program would be buffered against political and/or budgetary storms? How? One suspects that a qualified leader, given the responsiblity, authority, and TIME, could reall focus on the work at hand and move things ahead. Some sort of long-term mandate from a district would also tend to minimize the "this too shall pass" attitude among district staff that can sometimes stifle good programs.
