Karen sent me this link today. It really resonates with what I see and think is part of our school's culture.How to address this is the big issue. We need a combined strength.
1. Meeting protocols are established and someone is the keeper of these
2. Accountability measures are put in place to ensure new initiatives are well underway and meet the school expectation. It appears to be that for a long time accountability was not there, challenging conversations have not been had, so when one occurs hackles rise and people do not know how or try to respond well.
3. Because mediocre practice has been allowed or not even expected when Professional earning asks us to reach a higher step it is beyond the comprehension of those who have only ever asked mediocrity of themselves and have not been challenged.
