      DR. PETER EARLEY [continued]: And we prefer that notion because it has that broadernotion of not only teaching in classrooms or instruction,which is a rather old fashioned notion anyway.Whereas learning-centered leadership,it reminds us the leader's role isabout learning, but learning at all levels.
