Pearls of Wisdom: Bravery and Leadership

By Lural Ramirez
Pearls of Wisdom: Bravery and Leadership

For over 30 years international school leaders, teachers, and counselors have come together for PTC professional learning experiences.  Each day of every program begins with a 'pearl of wisdom', a 'nugget of knowledge', or a 'gem of inspiration' from one of the participants.  We are delighted to offer our readers around the world these powerful stories, insights, and strategies, all dedicated to our shared mission of ever more and better learning for our children.  

In this Pearl, Lural challenges us to lead more than we manage, to be brave in the face of challenges, and particularly when it comes to the challenge of social justice.


Lural Ramirez is the Head of School at the Centro Educativo Futuro Verde, Costa Rica.
