V. Philosophy of Educational Leadership  

Identify and organize your thoughts about what educational leadership ought to be and how it impacts the schools. Your philosophy can guide you in developing a consistent vision, creating goals, and formulating action plans and serves as a check and balance between practice and theory. When developing a philosophy think about the following questions.

What is the role of public education in a free society? ----- Is it your view that students attend school to acquire vocational skills? For moral development? To develop "basic skills" primarily? To learn about good citizenship and other civic values? What is the ultimate goal of schooling? Perhaps there are other purposes that guide your leadership vision.

What kind of organizational culture best supports successful teaching and learning?

What is the goal of leadership? ----- Even though you may be a full time teacher, as an intern, you are now viewing the school through the eyes of an administrator/supervisor.

What is your preferred goal of supervision? Explain why.

What model of supervision and supervisory strategies would you use in carrying out your instructional leadership role?

Can all kids learn? How? ----- The ultimate goal of all of any school must be to ensure that learning has taken place among all students. In your mind, what kinds of skills, attitudes, and feelings do want your students to possess?

What do you believe about participatory management? ----- From your leadership perspective, who holds the decision-making responsibility in schools? Who should be involved in the decision-making process? In what kind of decisions should each participant group be involved?

Are you tied to specific programs or methods? ----- How will instruction take place to ensure the educational outcomes that you desire?
