Bill: Only B.A. For Superintendents?

Idaho State Schools Supt. Tom Luna wants to change state laws so that anyone who's at least 25 and has a bachelor's degree could be superintendent of an Idaho school district, the AP reports. “This will give local school boards the flexibility to hire the individual they deem the right person for the job, whether it's a former teacher, a CEO of a company, an individual with an MBA or another qualified candidate,” Luna said. Luna is the first non-educator to serve as Idaho's state schools chief; he was the president of an industrial truck scale company in Nampa when he defeated Democrat Jana Jones in the November 2006 election/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

Question: Is it a good idea to allow anyone with a bachelor's degree to be a school district superintendent?
