What Makes a Great School Leader?

What Makes a Great School Leader? | Education and Training | Scoop.it
This is the time of year when, for many different reasons, some teachers consider taking positions at other schools. I've received a number of calls from friends and colleagues this spring asking for

This post made my eyes water a bit. Don't know what that means exactly ;-) But I do know I've had some great leaders!


I think every leader CAN be great - it's also up to the school and teachers to help the principal BE a great leader, too!

A short article on rigor, with input from industrial managers.  The role of questioning in rigor is raised, as well as collaboration, leadership, agility, adaptibility, initiative, entrepreneurialism, oral/written communication, accessing/analyzing information, and curiousity/imagination.

I like the word vigour. It fits with life. I agree we need new education and that is not a new package with technology as the add-on. It is a whole new way of thinking i.e. a Kuhnian paradigm shift.

Why I Am Dropping Out of Administration

Why I Am Dropping Out of Administration | Education and Training | Scoop.it

"I've come to several conclusions about working in administration:

      

Leading faculty members is not at all like running a business. It's about creating an atmosphere that allows faculty members to accomplish their goals and dreams. Some administrators fail to understand that.   Some faculty members are simply hard-wired to disagree with administrators. ..

   .

Depending on what your administrative job is, you might be spending most of your time dealing with complaints. ...    As an administrator, you're never truly off duty. ...     While people often seek administrative posts because they see themselves as leaders, much of the day-to-day job is not really about leading. Instead, it is often about signing documents, approving travel requests, vetting adjuncts, writing evaluations, sending thank-you notes, creating committees. ...     Oddly, some administrative work is unavailable once you become an administrator. ... As a full-time administrator, however, I don't sit on any "faculty" committees. It seems a little ironic to me that once I step down from administration, I'll be eligible to do more committee work at the university level than I can do now.     The work of administration can be lonely."

This higher education focused post has relevance to anyone in a professional position who considers or has been in an administrative role.    

The role of a department or shared services business manager may be highlighted by the author's view that it isn't like running a business.  With higher education pressures today, that could be a serious omission.  ~  Deb

Our Educational Leaders Must Get Aggressive With Technology

Our Educational Leaders Must Get Aggressive With Technology | Education and Training | Scoop.it

Technology and social media continue to dramatically change the way we live and work. Social media in particular can be a great equalizer by enabling job seekers to connect with influencers outside of traditional offline social networks. Given its importance, why isn't this technology playing a stronger role in the curricula of our schools? For an insider's view, I spoke with PJ Caposey, principal and assistant superintendent at Stillman Valley schools in rural Illinois. PJ is the author of Teach Smart and winner of the 2013 Outstanding Young Educator Award.

A MUST read!!!

 

Sridevi Parthasarathy's curator insight, November 20, 2013 11:43 PM

The most powerful thought this article provokes, is the need to empower children to feel independent and take pride in their ideas. Education is no longer about a tedious transfer of information but facilitating innovation in learning and debating differences. This will call for  a radical change in the way we view our education system, especially in India. We claim to mimic the traditional Gurukul system  which called for experiencing life while learning from it; but we go against every construct of experience and believe that recall of knowledge is way to suceed. The Social Media could contribute greatly in this process of debate, as long as we put in regulators to help people focus.

A lack of respect is a substantial reason. I left because of it and many others stay despite it. It is not a lack of respect from students and parents. It is from colleagues and administrators.
