Learning is essential to avoid eternal victimization.
on October 11, 1999
From the beginning, one finds oneself within a paradigm of resigned helplessness. What has always been will always be. For a public school administrator who recognizes the need to break this paradigm, Outlearning the Wolves provides a graphic yet humorous approach to change. The reader is quick to draw parallels between the life-and-death existence of the sheep and those challenges which face a school faculty. Who are the leaders? Who are the wolves? What is the place of "history" in problem-solving? Are there alternatives to "fate," or are we always going to be victims? As a building (high school) principalI will ask my Leadership Council to read the book and follow up with discussion.
