Farewell to the Post Turtle. (I don't know how he got here but he didn't get here without some help)
It is reasonable to question how a college graduate in 2001 with his first job as a HS English teacher gets his PhD 7 years later, is an adjunct professor at 4 universities one year after that and becomes the Superintendent of the 5th largest school district in the country in 2012. Can someone explain another profession where an individual can become elevated that fast?
As a military officer, at 32 you are a wet-behind-the-ears Major and a department head in a squadron. Not the XO or the CO. You are certainly capable of planning and executing a major strike package consisting of multiple aircraft with coordinated fires to complete a mission. You are not a 2 star Flag officer nor a CEO, nor a Superintendent.
Mr. Dance and his security detail (Arriving in 3 SUVs with tinted windows) did less to impress me when they cleared the entrance filled with parents at an elementary school when he arrived to conduct a walk-around.
