Dr. Roger Catania shares why schools should be more selective in purchasing practices in order to promote a stronger local economy.
Dr. Roger Catania shares why schools should be more selective in purchasing practices in order to promote a stronger local economy. Dr. Catania recently retired from Lake Placid Centra School District in New York.
In his long career as superintendent, Dr. Roger Catania has thought continuously about how to lead his schools so that their students become citizens that enrich their communities. In his final years as superintendent, however, Roger began considering something else— how communities, and more specifically businesses, can make schools a better place to learn.
In doing this, Roger has created a set of standards that he believes all businesses should follow—if they want to do business with schools.
In this episode, Roger explores how corporate practices can impact student learning and what schools can do about it.
You can read Dr. Catania's views on ethical school purchasing in the AASA's Journal of Scholarship and Practice.
