Educational leadership is not accepting for what is, but preparing for what isn’t.
Educational leaders should not be teaching to students just to prepare them for our past, but working with students in a collaborative learning environment that will allow these learners to construct their own knowledge to prepare them for their future. This forward thinking will allow the learner to build on the previous knowledge acquired to create new and unique knowledge; and not simply focus on the same or similar information from the past. The learner of today and tomorrow will prepare themselves for the problems of the future and the knowledge yet unknown to solve these problems; and not accepting for what is, but preparing for what is not yet discovered.
