Ten days before the 1973 election, Director of the Berkeley Board of Education Louise Stoll outlined the challenges ahead:  the difficulty of incentivizing teachers to continue teaching rather than pursuing more prestigious and well-paying careers as administrators; the need to cut down on the overwhelming bureaucratic structure of the district (1,124 certified employees for 14,000 students); the need for more rigorous evaluation procedures (of programs that relied on unsustainable federal grants and lack critical oversight; of teachers by students; and of principals by teachers); and the need for the superintendent and school board to stop rubber-stamping programs into existence.
