Control, Conformity, or Alignment?

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • If you find yourself hoarding information because you’re afraid of what people will do if they get it, you’ve already lost control of your school.
  • The paradox of “best practices” is that by using the word “best” you begin to think that it’s the “best” you can do as a school -- even when those “best” practices sometimes fail students. 
  • Chasing “best practices” leads to shiny object syndrome. You’re always looking for the next strategy, technique, or tool. However, when you anchor in the principles of effective instruction, you can continue to grow without lurching from one strategy to the next.
  • Be stubborn on the vision but flexible on the details.
  • You cannot achieve your 100% vision on your own. Your vision is your baby but you’ll need others to help you raise it.
