What is School Headship?
Late Dev Lahiri: “School Headship will happen to you if you are a good teacher.Education is a field that is changing rapidly almost every single day. As a teacher you should keep yourself well informed with these changes. You definitely need to have a masters and a BEd degree.For a good school head you have to equip yourself with the knowledge that is required. The point in India is that there is a great scarcity of school heads. Today lots of new schools are coming up and they are looking for someone to head their school.”
