Abstract

While working with teachers, teacher educators, educational leaders and principals of schools and teacher education colleges throughout the country, I am informed that the most significant factor for transforming public sector schools is winning the trust of teachers. Teachers, no matter how they are recruited and what their current competencies are, have become part of the work-force in public sector schools. It is observed that the school administrators have exhausted their trust and treat all kinds of teachers including good and committed teachers, with the same administrative approach which places them in odd situations, wherein they start losing their own trust to remain present in their classes which results in a sheer wastage of resources in education. The present proposal critically examines as to why navigation with trust is essential at this point of time and how, through appreciative processes, the public sector schools could be transformed towards learning organizations in Pakistan.
