Cages of Their Own Design: Five Strategies to Help Education Leaders Break Free. Education Outlook No. 1
Hess, Frederick M.
American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research
The education profession is notorious for its resistance to change. School leaders often claim that collective bargaining agreements, state and federal regulations, and budget concerns prevent them from pursuing effective school reform. The culture of the K-12 leadership environment is one that often seeks consensus over progress and collegiality over accountability. But breakthrough leadership is possible in schools. This "Outlook" offers five strategies to help reform-minded educators step boldly out of self-defeating mind-sets into the turbulence of change. (Contains 20 notes.)
