Education Leadership in Complex Times
Leading complex pedagogical change in schools requires patience for the slow and messy nature of the work, respectful and trusting relationships with people, listening with curiosity and authenticity, and respect for context and history.
Flip the System
At its core, the Flip the System movement is about teacher agency – empowering teachers to shape our profession, democratising education, replacing top-down accountability with teacher-led reform, and elevating the voices of those working in schools to such a level that their influence cannot go unnoticed.
