Too often, we defer leadership to later grades or even to adulthood, and then ask people to be leaders (make critical decisions) when they have never developed that skill. If we ever plan to ask students to lead, we must prepare them. If we don't help them practice leadership (decision-making), we run the risk of setting up this current generation to fail when they are asked to lead as adults.
