WWC Quick Review of the Report "The New York City Aspiring Principals Program: A School-Level Evaluation"
What Works Clearinghouse
"The New York City Aspiring Principals Program: A School-Level Evaluation" examined whether schools with novice principals trained through the Aspiring Principals Program had higher student achievement than schools led by other novice principals. The study included schools in New York City led by principals who were hired in 2004 or 2005 and had served as principal for three consecutive years. The analysis included 86 schools that were assigned a principal trained through the program and 319 schools whose principals did not participate in the program. The research described in this report is not consistent with What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) evidence standards. WWC cautions that the schools to which principals trained through the Aspiring Principals Program were assigned were substantially lower achieving in math and English and had different racial/ethnic compositions than comparison schools before the placement of novice principals. Although the study authors control for these pre-existing differences in their analysis, other differences between the schools could influence changes in student test scores. As a result, the study's findings cannot be attributed with confidence to the Aspiring Principals Program. [The following study is the focus of this "Quick Review": Corcoran, S. P., Schwartz, A.
