Welcome to the Charter Leadership Institute Discussion Board.
Charter Leadership Forum
Scott Shirey Presentation
I thought his presentation was great. I think he did a good job of presenting key information regarding curriculum alignment, while also providing us with some of the real day to day issues he deals with as a charter school director. I truly appreciated his honesty.
Lisa, are you suggesting that a traditional school leader cannot take personal interest in his/her students? What is it about charter schools that gives the school leader this advantage?
I would welcome comments to my reply from others as well.
I think a traditional school leader can take personal interest in her students. The difference between a charter school leader and a traditional leader is that a charter school leader usually has fewer students at her school than a traditional leader. Therefore it is easier for her to know each student in the school on a personal level.
