Description

School leadership is a key factor in recruiting and retaining quality teachers; teaching quality, in turn, profoundly influences student achievement. Yet despite their central role in this equation, school leaders have received relatively little policy attention during the past two decades of school reform initiatives.

This policy brief, produced by the Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning at WestEd, is based on the research of Linda Darling-Hammond and her colleagues and is part of a broader effort to bring the central role of principals to the forefront.

The brief focuses on major challenges facing the education leadership workforce, reviews existing data about California principals, provides an overview of the state’s current efforts, and draws upon what is known about promising leadership programs in other states.
