Should educational leadership professors spend some of their time as practicing administrators?

Lecturing (and up) is higher status than teaching in the minds of many. Identifying those who practice, and in turn those who have suffient affordance to lead in meaninful ways, de-schools and se-systemises a culture, complete with status and tenure. Teachers are novices for a short time, and experts for the longest time.
In Australia, we celebrate selective (academic driven) high schools, dogmatic to the essay and exam. Over 90% of these students are from non-english speaking backgrounds. The way in which we choose to deny social needs (not just change), leads me to believe that it is a small few who will outreach and take a stance on what youve identified as a cultural worldview.
The lack of action, connection and exposure to the reality of providing and managing an education system able to provide quality for all, not just a few — supports the status quo Im affraid. To me, the only realistic option is to separate qualifications from physical buildings that house immovable brains (who enjoy a wealthy lifestyle).
As soon as kids can get quality, resonant experiences elsewhere, then we stand a much better chance of claiming to be a socially inclusive culture. As it is, it is easier to place endless philosophical arguements to sustain the lack of change. After all, we have been on the brink of change for decades.
Make them wear a flashing badge ‘non practicing theorist at work’.
