The Shared Vision InBasket simulates the issues faced by a busy principal each day while working continuously to create, sustain and evolve the learning community.
Effective school leaders build consensus among all stakeholders of what students should know and do as a consequence of their participation in schools, as well as what it means for students to become well-adjusted, contributing members of society. Building such a vision can require reconciling possibly competing perspectives among diverse members of the school community.
