I am currently on sabbatical investigating opportunities ands issues for sole charge and remote schools and was most interested to read both this article and Jeff Hayward's sabbatical write-up. Seems there is a strong case for more support for remote, sole charge principals. My catch-phrase is 'staff' not 'stuff'. We get delivered truck loads of 'resources' but don't have the time or staff to effectively implement even our own curriculum let alone all the add ons!
