Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 29, 2:33 PM

Leadership has been changing for some time, but not uniformly. It is not readily evident in education that hierarchy is a thing of the past. What this means is that we are educating children and youth in a model that theorists think is passe. No wonder we have a crisis. Practice and theory are not separate, they are fused.

Excellent argument and validation for Instructional Leaders to be at the forefront of the cutting edge in instruction.  That involves conceptual learning, instructional technology that redefines the learning, and quality instructional implementation both in classrooms and in professional development.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, February 10, 4:39 PM

It is wise not to allow allow large dichotomies, perhaps false dichotomies to dominate this debate. Critical thinking, collaborative work and knowledge of content are all important and attainable for good teachers, as they have been. It is a matter of emphasis. Check

But, we are almost 15% of the way into the century. Why has it not happened? And, it has not. Not even where I used to work.
