I am documenting the ongoing conversation about how to do this safely.
We rarely talk about it, but in our work, many educators have told us they won’t blog because they are afraid it will show others “what they don’t know”. They see leaders in education as people who will label them as being inappropriate for leadership roles.
We talk a lot about how we want a growth mindset for our students, yet conversations with aspiring leaders demonstrate that challenging leaders can result in a label – “not moving up in this organization”.
How do we build a system that values challenge to the status quo? How do we challenge the status quo without jeopardizing our careers in the current environment?
Below is the conversation currently developing. Please add to the conversation and help push our thinking about how we can best effect change – how those wanting to challenge can do so effectively.
