If you could speak openly and honestly to a principal or superintendent, what would you say? What would you tell him or her about technology, classrooms, and change?
Hopefully, you have multiple opportunities to do this in an ongoing professional dialogue about what is best for students. This is one of those opportunities. What can I learn from you about how to make a difference in my school regarding these issues? What can I pass on to my colleagues in my district and around the country? Someday when I am a superintendent, what can I do to make a difference in a dozen schools?
There are many criticisms out there about public school administrators, and many of them are fair, but we also need people to come forward with ideas and solutions. The comment on yesterday's post by Scott Floyd is a great place to start. I'd like to hear from others. Please contribute.
