Sergiovanni, Thomas J. Moral Leadership: Getting to the Heart of School Improvement.
"Leadership as Outrage: It is the teacher's responsibility to be outraged when empowerment is abused and when purposes are ignored.

It can [create] the belief that children have no right to fail." [emphasis added]
No right to fail.
