"Standardization, the great ally of mediocrity, wins out over imagination."

Thomas Sergiovanni

For Tom Mason education is his second career. During his first 25 working years Tom served in the United States Air Force as a law enforcement specialist.

Before retiring from the Air Force, he earned an M.Ed. from Northern Arizona University, a B.S. in Psychology from Excelsior University, and an A.A.S. from the Community College of the Air Force.
