Who Teaches, Who Principals, Who Learns?
O'Reilly, Gabrielle; Latimer, Milree
An alternative framework that supports the collaboration of principals and teachers, with a focus on the changing roles of teachers and principals as learners and leaders, is presented. A conclusion is that as teachers' belief systems change to respect the image of the learner, principals' belief systems also change to reflect a new image of the teacher. Teachers' and principals' adaptive practices and beliefs thus contribute to a new theory of teaching and learning. A recommendation is made for the generation of a collaborative model of teaching and learning that respects the autonomy and integrity of all learners. (28 references) (LMI)
