Something Must be Done

When I was a main scale teacher I often thought “something must be done” about this or that.

As time passed I became a teacher leader and I realised that it was my job to do something.

I heard teachers around me continuing with the mantra “something must be done”. “They” should do something about “it”. As a leader I have always tried to understand what the “they” and “it” are, and to move on to the “how” stage, and the “actions” stage.
As a profession we don’t seem to have got beyond the “something must be done” stage. We seem to be hoping that “they” will do something different, be it the government or the opposition.

The only way anything different is going to happen is if the “they” becomes “we”.
Time for the profession to lead.
