In this article, journalist Nick Morrison considers whether headteachers in Britain must have been teachers first to be effective. While some say headteachers should have the industry experience that comes from being a classroom teacher, others disagree. They say that headteachers can gain such knowledge through classroom observations and time. They say it is important that school leadership teams include someone with teaching experience -- but it does not have to be the head.
Should Britain hire headteachers without teaching experience?
