Leading from the Middle

Andy Hargeaves’ article on Leading from the Middle introduces the approach that is based on not just mediating and managing other people’s reforms individually; they become the collective drivers of change and improvement together. When districts Lead from the Middle together, they
● respond to local needs and diversities.
● take collective responsibility for all students’ and each other’s success.
● exercise initiative rather than implementing other people’s initiatives.
● integrate their own efforts with broad system priorities
● establish transparency of participation and results.
