Does it… I mean really?

I was speaking to Kevin Bartlett recently. Kevin is the Director of International School Brussels and one of the leading educational innovators behind the creation of the PYP. We were talking about leadership and he said:

“If leadership is not improving learning, there is no leadership.”

This made me think of the many hundreds of things that take up our time in education and I altered Kevin’s statement a bit to become:

“If our time  is not being used to improve learning, we might be wasting it.”

Have a look at your working week, your school calendar, your meeting agenda. Are some things on there that will not improve learning? If so, do you need to do them?

Go on. Scrap ’em!!! Take back that time, you need it.
