I had an ‘aha’ moment when this week’s readings discussed the notions of the way schools are run and compared them with businesses. I also had a chat with the TL at our school about the concept and we both agreed that in the current climate it is important to see the school as a business. Now more than ever parents seem to be shopping around for the best schools and have more information available to do so with tools like the myschools website.
I suppose before doing my masters I had not had such a strong sense of this and had not thought about it in such a way. Certainly a reflection that will assist me in assignment two.
