DON’T RELEGATE ETHICS
It is fine to talk about accountability in leading and teaching. Accountability is important. It is often the only thing that is discussed.
Consider though, the need for ethics to underpin leading and teaching. Accountability Leadership (AL) is demanded of school leaders by systems. Principals and school leaders in turn put AT (accountability [in] teaching) back onto teachers. This is about meeting systemically imposed standards, with testing, measurement and assessment the key national education drivers.
In all this, I am disappointed that the ethical elements of leading and teaching can take a back seat. Holistic education, which considers the social, we optional and moral/spiritual factors of development can run second the the academic imperative. If and when this happens, students are the losers.
