    Hi - never posted on here before so be gentle!

    As part of my role as a Teaching School director, I am hosting a Leadership Conference and as part of the day am having a live 'provocation' and debate. I'm trying to come up with some questions that are open-ended but also lively in order to get a reaction from the delegates. Any ideas? What's the elephant in your SLT room?

    Thank you :)

    1 How are we going to recruit and retain the best teachers?
    2. How are we going to recruit and retain the best school leaders- it is as big a problem. It seems like anyone can become a school leader these days because there are so few good applicants.
    3. The national system is chaotic and not serving the best interests of all children. Why are school leaders not standing up to this government en masse?
