    Mary L. The reason you do not see direct "front line" teacher feedback is because the people designing the plan are "empire building" administrators. The senior executives involved are ADMINISTRATORS not LEADERS. Administrators collect information via administration to achieve self defined aims which both will add to their "empire" and cover their butts if things go awry. Leaders lead, get their information from those "in contact"; have a close, personal contact with those in the front line and use this information both to define aims that can be achieved and lead front liners by building on their knowledge and example to achieve a defined aim. Administrators collect paper to feather their own nests. Therefore, administrators like to do things in circles ! Leaders lead directly to achieve an a defined objective identified by front liners in direct contact.

    I do not see too much presentation from the front line workers in the classroom especially at the junior and senior high level.

    Garth: For once I agree with you. Those who can do... those who cannot go in circles! The only reason committees like this are formed is because the Minister and Deputy Minister cannot make up their minds. No wonder students are "under achieving"... Better parents spend at least an hour a school night with students going over what was learned that day then spending their time in "circle meetings"... it is called PARENTING!

      Our students are surrounded by layers of offices all hoping to become important rather than operate as a disciplined team---a team with leadership skills.
