Ensuring Quality Leadership. A Program Funded by the GE Fund (Formerly the General Electric Foundation).
Kritek, William J.
This paper describes the Ensuring Quality Leadership (EQL) program implemented cooperatively by faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Education and School of Business Administration, business executives from the Milwaukee area, and principals from Milwaukee's Public Schools (MPS). The program was designed to: (1) provide expert resource people, mentoring, and interaction with university faculty to MPS principals; (2) provide a continuing forum for principal interaction with colleagues in order to establish a network of principals with a common vision for schools and leadership; (3) provide a forum for university faculty to work together with input from principals and business executives to develop a greater understanding of the leadership needs of principals; (4) redesign the preparation program for future MPS administrators and the curriculum for future principals; and (5) be a model of system-wide leadership for other school districts. Program participants met monthly to listen to presentations and then later reflect in discussion groups. This paper describes program participants, program presentations during the first year, opinions of program participants after the first year, program presentations during the second year, and hurdles faced during program implementation.
