Can Administrators Be Instructional Leaders? | The Connected Leader | Scoop.it

My interest in building exciting learning communities that benefit all children is what motivates me to be thinking about taking the plunge into school leadership, so I often reflect on the challenges and rewards of being an instructional leader in a school.

The interchangeable parts is the one that stood out for me. It does not mean we are disposable, rather it means we have flexibility and can move into the foreground and background as necessary.

donhornsby's curator insight, September 29, 2013 9:31 AM

(From the article): Look, as a leader, you set the tone for how your employees experience large-scale change. You could be the one that enables fearless (but informed) innovation and experimentation – or you can be the one holding up the instruction book saying, “That’s not how we do it.” The choice is yours.

School Leaders: Best way to see gains in effective teaching and student achievement

School Leaders: Best way to see gains in effective teaching and student achievement | The Connected Leader | Scoop.it

Great principals are change agents. As school leaders, principals are the lynchpin of effective implementation of any school-level reform and are critical to student success. Principals account for 25 percent of a school’s total impact on student achievement1and can have a greater impact on all students than teachers because principals ensure effective instruction year to year across the entire school.2 The best way to see effective teaching and student achievement gains at scale is to deepen the bench of great school leaders.

(From the article): David Gergen, in 2000, published Eyewitness to Power, summarizing his perspective on leadership after having served in the White House for several presidents from both political parties. Though derived from a wider range of proven examples, the lessons learned have great resonance because they can apply to education. Here they are:
