On 9 December 2014 the Department for Education launched a government consultation focused in its own words ‘on the professional leadership and development of teaching’ (p.5). The 16 page document in which the current government’s proposals about this subject were contained, was entitled ‘A World Class Teaching Profession’. At the Eastern Leadership Centre, a not-for-profit charitable business supporting educational leadership and development [NB this charity was dissolved in late 2016] we think that a question mark would have improved this consultation’s title. Carefully considered questions are one of the most powerful tools for any educator or leader: and since we believe that by definition all educators are leaders, we tend to take questions seriously.
