Frailey: ‘Community is King’

In his first appearance on Education Talk Radio as the president of AASA, The School Superintendents Association, Alton Frailey talked about the importance of elevating the value of community in school districts across the country.

“Community is king,” said Frailey, the superintendent of Katy Independent School District in Katy, Texas, on the program, Friday, July 22. “[As AASA president] I really want to raise the importance of community. We should never have a situation where the school and the community are embattled with each other.”

In conjunction with AASA’s Legislative Advocacy Conference, Frailey was installed as the 149th president of the organization. Click here to view highlights of Frailey’s installation ceremony.

Frailey also discussed the importance of the work currently being done by superintendents, especially as it relates to the community. “This is the most public work we do as a country,” he said. “We need to magnify the voice of school system leaders.”
