|Time for principals to come out!|
|Lets listen To Lester Flockton|
I don't know if the acquiescence of principals, I hesitate to call them leaders, is about a bad case of being risk averse, a lack of a solid educational philosophy, the result of a competitive market to enrol students, or a form of 'creeping Eichmannism'? All I know is that nothing will change until school leaders develop some moral courage to decide 'what is worth fighting for' that is unless they are happy to be de-professionalised along with teachers in the UK, the US and Australia.
Perhaps another cause of educational timidity is the reluctance to become involved in politics and, in the process, becoming willing pawns implementing government policy right or wrong - and wrong it is.
The real possibility of educational change of direction at the next election ( as part of a shift in the political air away from the now seen as failing 'market forces' ideology ) is why I continue to write my blog.

|Back to Beeby!|
Sadly I m left wondering about the views of the current principals - maybe they are too busy complying to have any. Surely this cannot be the case?
One principal speaks out at least
A creative school
