Aspiring School Leaders

The number of Black teachers moving into middle and senior leadership roles in schools within the United Kingdom is still considerably low when compared to teachers from other ethnic backgrounds. The reasons for this are varied, but one key message that comes up time and again relates to the adage, ‘you cannot be what you cannot see.’ In this this third book in the Letters to a Young Generation series, Black headteachers from across the United Kingdom have written letters sharing their advice to the next generation of Black school leaders. This book is for those considering applying for a school leadership role who need to understand not only why they would become a leader in the current educational climate, but also why they would do so when there is still such a lack of representation within the profession. The letters are honest and heartfelt and a reminder of exactly why representation matters.
