Administrators

For schools to be free and well-structured places of democratic practice, students, faculty and parents need leaders who not only value democratic principles, but also know how to inspire and support the beliefs and actions that help bring those principles into being.

As administrators, you are the “glue” that holds a healthy organizational culture together. You create the conditions that define the way people in your educational communities live and work together. More than anyone else in the school community, you are the person people turn to for sense-making, mediation and clarity of shared purpose.

How do you strike the right balance between individual freedoms and group structures? How do you build the Five Freedoms into the daily routines of your school’s community? What skills will you seek to cultivate — both in yourself and in others — to bring a more collaborative, respectful culture into being? What ideas are you ready to share? What questions do you still need to ask?
