The Future of School Leadership: A Principal’s View

Journal Article


Abstract


  • If we do not change our direction, we

    are likely to end up where we are

    headed. Ancient Chinese Proverb

    The ancient Chinese proverb reminds us as

    educational leaders that we need to reflect

    upon where we are and where we are going.

    We have a responsibility to consider what

    lies ahead in the school context lest we be

    left behind amidst the changes which are

    taking place. It is sobering to note that

    students enrolled in Kindergarten in 2009

    will graduate from Year 12 in 2021; what

    type of world will they enter at that time,

    and how will the education we have provided

    equip them for that world?
