What do 6 superintendents, 22 principals, 7 educational leadership professors, and 10 other central office / leadership folks have in common? They're all blogging for LeaderTalk, the first group blog written by school leaders for school leaders.
LeaderTalk is intended to be a blog that is 'the place to go' for insightful, thoughtful,
reflective commentary about what it means to be a P-12 administrator
today. LeaderTalk is a blog that will express the voice of the administrator.
Over the coming months you will see a lot of insightful commentary and lively discussions about P-12 school leadership. We invite you to join our conversations and hope that you will publicize this new blog widely among your local administrative communities. We are continually looking for new voices to add to the discussion, so if you know any school leaders who might be good contributors, please nominate them for consideration.

- America's two political tribes have consolidated into 'red' and 'blue' nations, with seemingly irreconcilable differences.
- Perhaps the best way to stop the infighting is to go for a divorce and give the two nations a country each
- Based on the UN's partition plan for Israel/Palestine, this proposal provides territorial contiguity and sea access to both 'red' and 'blue' America
Science and the squishiness of the human mind. The joys of wearing whatever the hell you want, and so much more.
- Why can't we have a human-sized cat tree?
- What would happen if you got a spoonful of a neutron star?
- Why do we insist on dividing our wonderfully complex selves into boring little boxes
