The bar has been raised

Lyn Hilt, Connected Principals, Aug 25, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Here's a myth that ought to be dispelled, and Lyn Hilt does it. From Scott McLeod (who IMHO panders to the leaders) we hear "if the leaders don't get it, it's not going to happen." False. Just ask people like Mubarak and Qaddafi. Hilt responds, "In my opinion, it can happen…. I’ve seen many rogue teachers propel their classes forward in a manner not necessarily supported or understood by the administration. But it’s not easy. And it’s not systemic." Right. It's better if the leaders get it. But let's revise the McLeod quote to something more accurate: "If the leaders don't get it, they're not going to be leaders much longer." Leading by holding people back is, in the long run, not effective.
