Endorsed Consultants - for whom?

I spent today engaged in workshops delivered by the NZ School Trustees' Association to "endorse" consultants involved in Principal Appraisal and Principal Appointment processes in our schools. Great people, both presenting and engaged in the learning, and some very useful information. However, I came away concerned about our always predominant 'one-size-fits-all' approach to all school processes, worried about the relevance of these processes for aspiring Māori and Pasifika principals, and even more disturbed by the fact that I know that processes like these have often prevented outstanding education leaders from securing principal positions.

Of course, I said so in the workshops!
