Misconceptions about School Leadership--Or, Who Is Buried in King Tut's Tomb?
Zimmerman, Judith A.
Educational Horizons, v87 n4 p260-266 Sum 2009
The author draws on personal experience and leadership literature to develop this story about learning from misconceptions. Specifically, comparisons are drawn between the author's historical misconceptions and common beliefs about the nature and administration of schools. The article uses the dispelled historical fallacies as a vehicle for sharing corresponding insights about school leadership.
