Example #23: First Impressions Matter

On October 25 I wrote a post about the absence of male leadership at the principal level in the elementary schools surrounding my restaurant. I discovered the absence after emailing sixteen local principals. You can read that post, here.

Unfortunately, I have only heard back from 2 of the 16. Are they really that busy that they can't shoot off an email back to me? Even if they don't want to partner with me, I would still appreciate a reply.

One of my firmest convictions is that first impressions matter. Right now I'm just glad that my kids don't go to any of these schools and that my property tax dollars don't fund them.
