Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers, v79 n6 p18-21 Sep 2004
Forty years after President Kennedy noted the connection, The Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) stated in its publication "Leadership Matters: Building Leadership Capacity" that "Leadership promotes learning." The SREB publication explores three strategies that it has found are used by leaders in schools that are increasing student learning: (1) modeling learning, in which school leaders exhibit the behavior they want teachers to display; (2) providing compelling reasons for others to learn (encouraging high expectations of students and high-level teaching for staff); and (3) creating a coaching environment for continuous growth that is safe, positive and supportive. This article describes the activities of several educators who have emerged as leaders in their schools by building partnerships and setting examples for others to follow.
