Perhaps the most important success factor in any school is the quality of leadership, especially at the Board and principal levels. The Ministry of Education would be far better employed if it concentrated on supporting and developing leadership capability across the school sector than trying to implement performamce measures that do little more than hone the gaming skills of those involved.

Thanks Jim – I just got around to reading that article and I think the author had a good point, as do you. I’d like TEC to support leadership too!

Kind of tricky to support leadership when you have a new CEO every couple of years (or fewer) and the organisation has been re-structured umpteen times.

Indeed Richard. In such circumstances one would have to question the quality of the leadership at the top, i.e those people who made the appointment. Not to mention the people who appointed (elected?) those people in the first place. Leadership development needs to extend to the very top. NZ Cricket is a good current example.
