Too Many Cooks Spoil the Broth

There's team and then there's too many for team.

When it comes to teaching well if there are too many leaders and not enough support, no matter how much energy you put into collaboration, the equation won't work.

For sensitive cases it takes the leadership of only a few, a few with time to meet, plan, research, and make decisions together. Too many leaders with not enough time for thoughtful planning and decision making will result in lost potential.

What's a teacher to do?

It's frustrating to know what's possible and not be able to get there due to cumbersome structure.

In a sense when situations like this arise you feel like you're caught in a web, your hands are tied, your voice is lost.

To buck the system is to create issues, yet to go along with things the way they are is to contribute to lost potential.

Sometimes it's best to wait it out, let others stand up, and observe. Often with time the answer arrives. Onward.
