I view schools as sanctuaries of learning. Sacred places where ways of thinking, ways of knowing, and ways of behaving are transmitted generationally forward.
As the core function of schools is LEARNING, the compelling need for increased learning applies just as much to the adults in those schools as it does to the children.
Further, if the learning of the adults in schools is not occurring at a richer and brisker clip than the learning of the children, a problem exists.
Further still, if the learning of the leaders in those schools is not occurring at a richer and brisker clip than the learning of ALL the other stakeholders (young and old alike), an even bigger problem exists.
Come to think of it, those same three assertion apply to ALL organizations. At least they do for those that intend to survive. When the learning stops, the circling of the drain accelerates.
LEARN forward, every day, on purpose. Leaders show the way, please.
