Leaders Remember: Holidays Can Be Hard For Children

Holiday time is approaching. For most of us, it is a happy time with family and friends, with memories and fondly held traditions. Most schools engage in activities that help raise funds for families in need, offering food and other gifts.  It can make a difference for the young recipients, but there are other issues that run deeper than the need for food or gifts.

Leaders Who Last

It is no secret that schools and the educators and students who work in and attend them are under stress. The time has come to radically change how our schools are organized, how time and work in schools is organized, how our leaders and teachers are trained, and how our students are taught.  The time demands leaders who think and act creatively (Harding, 2010). Read…

Moral Principles of Leadership: Lessons From MISSOU President Tim Wolf

It appears, that former University of Missouri System President Tim Wolf ignored reports of an unsafe and unfair racist environment growing within his community.

Our powerful disconnect
In a January 2015 commentary in Education Week, school psychologists Stephen Brock and H. Thomas Brant write that the report by Connecticut's Office of the Child Advocate on the Sandy Hook shootings highlights the continued challenges facing our mental-health system, where disconnects between our schools and communities play a critical role.

Teaching Students Cyber Ethics

Student safety, student behavior, and student learning are a trio of educator responsibilities. Educators have always operated within and held students to a standard of behavior memorialized in a code of conduct.  Ethical behavior, good manners, and certainly legal behavior are taught in homes, houses of worship, and community groups, and are reinforced by teachers and leaders throughout the students' thirteen years in school.
