Organizational chart

Waterloo Region District School Board organizational chart 

The Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) placed students on the highest spot of its organizational chart. 

“We found that responsible, service-based leadership does not require a hierarchy,” said WRDSB director of education Jeewan Chanicka in a Thursday video.

So PARENTS are not even on the chart. WOW


4-17 year old children are the wisest, most experienced, and best decision makers in the world.


This seems to be a CEO type move that surfaces up with notable regularity. Usually some consultant comes up with it: 'inverse hierarchy' or something like that and it gets a few takers. Something like the various other programs out there. Remember" TLQ, work smarter not harder, etc etc. I even think Scott Adams 'Dilbert' did some sequences on this area. Points to the 'pointy haired boss'.


Interesting how parents aren't in the org chart. Sure, let's let teenagers and kindergarteners run things!
