Yesterday’s Dilbert comic strip gives a good example of how it seems some “school reformers” view the idea of “teacher leadership.”
Here are some examples of what I believe teacher leadership is:
TEDxNYED – April 28, 2012 – Jose Vilson
International Inspiration for Building Teacher Leadership
Larry, thanks a lot for writing this post and for sharing the links. I LOVED Jose Vilson’s video from beginning to end: well-spoken, thoughtful and clear.
The debate about the teacher’s voice is surprisingly the same not only in the U.S but apparently in many parts of the world as well. I believe it just testifies to the importance of teachers’ roles in their communities and how education and practically all aspects of people’s lives overlap.
