The Principal as Educator. A Report by the Program Reference Service.
This booklet features the success of New York Public School 129 in conducting its reading program for disadvantaged students. The principal of this Harlem school emphasizes primarily her role as head teacher and assigns a secondary place to her executive functions. Rather than stress such current innovative practices as heterogeneous groupings, individualized instruction, and team teaching, she prefers to maintain a traditional setting with the added belief that love, as a prerequisite to learning, must be given more than lip service. At PS 129 the prevailing philosophy is that a public school should be a place where children can be happy and have fun, and where genuine concern for the children and their parents is paramount. (JF)
