Example text

Let’s stop teaching children to fear change and protect the status quo. Let’s teach them to enquire and debate. To ask questions until they hear answers. And the way to do it is to change the way of our traditional schooling. Our educational system does its best to ignore and suppress the creative spirit of children. It teaches them to listen unquestioningly to authority. It insists that education is just knowledge contained in subjects and the purpose of education is to get a job. What’s left out is sensitivity to others, non-violent behavior, respect, intuition, imagination, and a sense of awe and wonderment.

Examples would be moving from a simple incremental school improvement approach to one which creates a high achievement and success culture where students believe they can achieve, where staff expect more of the children and the community and parents are re-engaged into active supporters of their children’s education. This involves complex levels of understanding and building a way of moving forward. Effective strategic leaders operate on the rational side by creating strategic plans although adjusting them with emergent strategy insights, while at the same time creating strategic intents which will enable the school to make strategic leaps in performance in areas which need radical reform and change.
