You Don’t Need to be Brilliant to be Wise…
I saw this video this morning thanks to fellow school administrator @gcouros on Twitter. George is a principal who gets the big picture – he pushes for excellence and resists rigid rules and policies that box educators into situations that deter doing what is right. He blogs about his own journey on The Principal of Change and hosts a shared principal blog called Connected Principals. Take a look at the video from Ted Talks featuring psychologist, Barry Schwartz. It was posted on George's blog The Principal of Change today.
Teachers – are you a wise educator focused on creating a relevant classroom that resists the lure of shallow rules that stop you from connecting to kids?
Principals – do you give in to the pressure to create shallow rules from teachers who can't see the deep wisdom and meaning in individual situations – or do you create an environment of deep meaning that is relavant to all students, staff members and the community your serve?
