Managers may come from diverse backgrounds, but they all have a variety of common qualities and objectives. Buckingham and Coffman (1999) argued that "great managers share one thing: Before they do anything else, they first break all the rules of conventional wisdom" (p. 11).

Children are the future and creative techniques of School District organization can perhaps elicit more constructive involvement from their parents.
