How Important Are Principals?
http://blogs.edweek.org/edweek/walt_gardners_reality_check/2016/10/how_important_are_principals_1.html?cmp=SOC-EDIT-FBPerhaps principals have always been expected to be more than merely administrators, but I believe the situation today is unprecedented. That's because the accountability movement demands results that would be alien to principals decades ago.
With so much depending on strictly quantifiable outcomes, one-fourth of the country's principals leave their schools each year. (I think the rate is higher in troubled schools.) That's not at all surprising. The pressure to post higher test scores and higher graduation rates becomes too great to bear.
