Public School Teachers Who Lead
Dieckmann, Jack; Montemayor, Aurelio
Intercultural Development Research Association
This article describes some core characteristics that reflect the underlying commitment of public school teachers to create and maintain vibrant learning environments for every student, every day, in every way, often under the bureaucratic pressures of high-stakes testing, rigid curricular fads, and simplistic administrative responses to accountability pressures. The success of public schooling depends on increasing the number of teachers who share these leadership characteristics.
