How might we let go *and* raise the bar at the same time?

Recently I asked an education leader, "What do you see as the most vital issues around great teaching and learning right now and over the next 3-5 years?"

"I think the most important question," she said, "is this: How do I let go of 'controlling' information and knowledge while at the same time raising the bar for students and doing it in a way that maximizes their chances for success?"

She added that every teacher, whether novice or master, must answer this question.

I wonder: might it be more difficult for the master teacher?
