THE deputy basic education minister Anna Nghipondoka has called on school principals to ensure that the working environment for teachers is conducive, allowing them to be creative and innovative.

She said school principals and managers should encourage participation through teacher leadership programmes.

Speaking at a media briefing this morning, Nghipondoka said principals should be the strong, decisive leadership needed by the schools, as they lead by example and being the key driver of success.

"Strengthen and expand the amazing teams that excel and firmly address disunity. Be reminded that a good leader makes a leader of others. A good leader listens and accepts good ideas from others and positively accommodates constructive criticism," the deputy minister said.
