Troxler: Janssen needs to step up



From Howard Troxler's latest column, running tomorrow in the St. Petersburg Times:

Safe and comfortable. Everybody liked Julie Janssen.

The teachers liked her. The teachers union practically demanded her selection. The staff celebrated her hiring.

Also make no mistake: She is universally described as dedicated, committed, incredibly hard working, strong on academics.

It is a shame that she is so often just plain flatfooted as a leader.
