Becoming Leo: Servant Leadership as a Pedagogical Philosophy
Fitzgerald, Robert J.
Critical Questions in Education, v6 n2 p75-85 Sum 2015
Teachers must accept that they need (and are required by law) to do more for their students than they have ever before been expected to do. If success in the classroom for every student is a priority, this neither can nor should be readily disregarded. The question is not whether teachers have to better assist struggling students, but rather are they adequately prepared and equipped with strategies to be more involved in ways that might help them overcome the obstacles they face daily. Robert Greeleaf's philosophy of servant leadership is a technique teachers should consider if they aspire to better help students surmount their daily struggles and be more willing to engage in learning. Those that adopt servant leadership and apply its principles in their classrooms will be more equipped to help students face daily obstacles by turning away from authoritative instructional techniques towards a more all-encompassing, communal approach to learning. A bibliography is included.
