A Teacher-led Model

Being a part of the Waterloo School team is a little different than the typical school. We are ‘teacher-led’, which means responsibilities and authority at the school are shared between ‘administration’ and ‘faculty’ in a much different way than the standard model. Administration doesn’t give teachers their ‘assignments’ and ‘manage’ them. Teachers lead each other and themselves, with a director to coordinate their work. Teachers are in the best position to reflect on and revise the institutional practices that support student learning and flourishing because they are with students every day. In a standard model where that is the chief responsibility of administration, perhaps responsible to a board, the decisions—and especially the responsiveness to change—can be disconnected from the realities our students face. The flip side of that of course is that, because teachers are largely ‘in the trenches’, they will benefit from leadership that leads them in stepping back from the daily tasks, drawing out their reflections, insights, and ideas and coordinating their wisdom into action that can benefit the entire organization and institution.

A teacher-led model has both more responsibility, autonomy, and reward. Perhaps chief to that is not measuring our work by what content we ‘cover’ with our students, but by how much we can transfer our own ownership to students, make student learning and growth ‘student-led’.

NOTE: Perhaps more than other professions, education tends to undermine the acquisition and development of expertise over-time. The complexity of factors involved in determining ‘quality’ in education means that simple factors like seniority and years of experience become important-if-not-accurate factors in compensation and decision-making. Similarly, reductive standardized test-scores become the quantifiable measure of academic success, and teacher authority is reserved for roles like department heads that simple reincarnate the ‘managers in factories’ organizational structure that modern businesses have carried forward from 19th century industry. We are not foraging uncharted ground to reject that paradigm for a teacher-led model, but we are different than the norm. Maturity, initiative, and ability matter more (and are rewarded more) in a model where teachers are responsible to lead themselves and each other in delivering a mission, and are able to assume levels of responsibility and professional growth to contribute to different needs of a school than the common organizational model allows.
