Guelzo For everyone from kindergartners to collegians, the aisles at the big-box stores are filling up with back-to-school pens, calculators, paper and notebooks. But there is one educational contingent that won’t find much help in the pens-and-paper department: incoming col­lege trustees. Only about half of pub­lic institutions provide training for newly arrived board members. Here’s some unsolicited advice from some­one who has spent a few decades with wing tips on…
