They’ve asked more than 330,000 questions in 21 different countries in an attempt to figure out just about everything teachers want to know. The first big question they’ve answered is about which countries respect teachers the most. You might be surprised that a country like Finland, known to have a high-quality education system, is not at the top of the heap. In fact, they’re nowhere near the top. The study is being released today and is available in full here.

As many school administrators are enjoying their summer break, we all tend to think of ways that we can make our school better in the upcoming year.
Often, I point school principals and district leaders to a powerful post by Will Richardson that helps us point the finger right at ourselves when we are looking to push our school ahead. Richardson states: "Meaningful change ain't gonna happen for our kids if we're not willing to invest in it for ourselves first. At the heart, it's not about schools . . . it's about us. " With that being said, I have spent the last few years focusing a great deal on my work as an instructional leader within my role as school-based principal, and now as division principal.

What do you think?” Mike*, a marketing director, was telling me about Anne, one of his employees, who had done a few things to frustrate him. She arrived late to a meeting with a client. Not that late – only ten minutes — still, it didn’t look good. Then, a few days later, she was supposed to email him some information by 4pm and didn’t do it until 6pm.
