The current system of appointments considers degree, seniority and relevant work experience. But a school leader has to have many specialized skills in order to administer and lead a school.
Do we need school leaders (principals, heads) educated and trained in a specialized fashion so that they are able to negotiate the everyday challenges of running their institution, motivating teachers, building trust with parents, creating bridges to other institutions and initiatives, and so on?
Are there competency frameworks, training programs, mentoring & coaching options, assessments and communities that need to be adopted/established if this is to be made possible?
