As school leaders who initially trained as classroom teachers, marketing probably wasn’t covered in your early, or even subsequent, training. Nevertheless, when competing for student enrolments, it pays to know some basic principles behind making your school image shine. Branding is all about cr...
SOMETIMES as leaders, we can look around us and decide it’s all too difficult. The odds are stacked against us, our peers don’t have to deal with the same pressures as we do.

Clearly Dean you are absolutely ignorant of what is happening in countries that are leaving us for dead in academic outcomes. Your incisive comments should be telegraphed to the French teaching profession who by your reckoning are all poor teachers because smart phones have recently been banned in their schools. Not a particularly helpful contribution to the debate, Dean!
This is absolute ignorance. The students need to be using these devices along with more technology than ever to enforce the skills they will need for tomorrow. This banning of technology is usually from poor teachers who don't know how to relate to real education and skills that our children need for the future. Follow people like Will Richardson, and read his research on this topic to see just how important it is that in schools, we not only allow digital technology in class, but base more time using it, which has been a big failing of schools and teachers all over the world.
This resonates with me. My sister who is also a teacher has had male genitalia drawn on paper and pointed in her direction; been called a bitch because she didn't buy a pancake from a male student selling them for - get this - White Ribbon Day - (she had good reason not to which is a whole other story). I was intimidated for a school year by a group of domineering male Yr 11s in my English class who refused to do any work and when I confronted them on the fact that the comments they were making about a female journalist could be construed as sexist they threatened to report me for calling them sexist.Fortunately I was in a supportive school. My sister wasn't. She was subjected to a rigorous grilling and official process by the principal while the students were never made accountable for the abuse they directed at her.
