Imagine a job interview with a group of people asking the questions - and in full view of the public.
That daunting situation is what faces five candidates Monday and Tuesday as they interview for the opportunity to become superintendent of Escambia County Schools.
The public interview process makes sense, though, because these gentlemen are vying for a position overseeing the future of our county - its children. Not only that, but our tax dollars support these schools, and what happens there affects all of us - whether we have children in the schools or not.
Three in-house candidates - David Nolin, William Hines and Randall Little - will join Decatur's Larry Collier and Andalusia's Daniel Shakespeare for a series of interviews at Flomaton High School.
The interviews are open to the public, and we encourage anyone who is interested to attend.
These men, who have a wide range of experience in education, deserve the attention and respect of the students and faculty and public they will serve if chosen for the position.
All, we expect, will have good ideas about the future of the school district.
We look forward to hearing what they have to say and how they will approach the challenges facing the district.
And we wish them all luck - most of us wouldn't envy the interview process they will go through, but it's the right thing to do.
