Table of Contents
How do you involve teachers in meaningful leadership opportunities without removing them from the classroom?
Never before has leadership been as important as it is today— and never has it been so demanding. Principals are expected to fulfill administrative and instructional leadership responsibilities. Administrative duties include safety, scheduling, evaluating, busing, compiling data, attending and conducting meetings, budgeting, disciplining, and so on. Instructional leadership emphasizes school culture, quality professional development, and ways to enhance student learning. Because administrative responsibilities normally require immediate attention, principals sometimes find themselves spending the bulk of their time performing administrative tasks at the expense of instructional leadership responsibilities. One way to solve this problem is to involve teachers with instructional leadership.
