I have decider-ed that I don't want to be only decision making-er in my classroom.
Well actually, I don't mind making decisions but it seems to me that more effective learning situations are a combination of leadership and collaboration.
I was engaged in a discussion yesterday with some friends about our political deciders and we all had a bleak viewpoint about the current state of affairs.
I have come to hear more and more grumbling about the way this administration has trampled people who didn't agree with the Decider-er. Citizens from both parties are incensed and disgruntled with the supression of dissent and narrow mindedness of our leadership.
What kind of example have we set for our citizens over the last 6 years? Is it time for a change?
I'd love to hear some comments.
