"In his book The Politics of Prevailing, Dr. Miller provides a real life chronology of how to survive the transformation of being an instructional leader to becoming a political broker. Clearly, the role and duty of the superintendent have been usurped by renegade school board members, teacher strikes, declining enrollment, school closings, civil rights issues, court interference, and the loss of basic subsidy. These changing trends have not adequately been addressed in graduate schools nor in required in-service programs. Therefore, the seasoned superintendents with long tenure must fill the void by sharing their knowledge and experience. This is exactly what Dr. Miller provides in his book. A must reading for all novice and veteran administrators." Dr. Dennis Murray, Superintendent of the Altoona Area School Districts, Retired [1984-2013].

As Arnold Hillman of Bright Futures Unlimited characterized him, "Bill is an anachronism. In these days of carpetbag superintendents and quick change artists, Bill has been a stable influence in the Tyrone Area School District since 1971...He is someone that students and communities can rely upon...in this era of people devoted to destroying public education."
