Transparency Rules

Motion Leadership Chapter 7

Trusting Transparency requires four main components

  1. Deprivatization of Practice
  2. Strategy for Improvement
  3. Take Risks
  4. Assessment Literate

Deprivatization of Practice

This requires an openness of our practice as educators. The history of teaching has been built on the individual professional autonomy of the teacher. Our stakeholders demand greater transparency than ever and if we are to thrive it is necessary to change our practice to open ourselves to invite inquiry, conversation, and collaborative analysis of these practices.

Transparency fosters culture change to a system to create positive change.

Practicing transparency is a risk taking proposition no question. But if done well and persistently the gain far outweighs the costs.
