And Tod S. Massa, a policy and research guy at the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia, is making an interesting bid by stressing what he isn't as much as what he is. "I am not a manager of a multi-million dollar budget. I am not a sitting executive. And I have not led a large, complex agency," Massa writes. "I am not afraid of what I am not nor should you be." He proceeds to tell the State Board that the qualifications that he does not meet pale in comparison to what he can bring that the state really needs - "a clear vision for the development and execution of data-based education policy that can be linked directly to improvements in student learning outcomes and publicly understood measures of student success." Massa then offers three pages of what he would do. To see his full packet, visit the search web site. It's an interesting approach, which may or may not impress the folks at Proact Search who are to recommend semifinalist to the State Board in mid-August. Might not even matter. Massa missed the July 23 application deadline.
