Research Findings to Support Effective Educational Policies: A Guide for Policymakers. 2nd Edition
Wallace Foundation
In this brief guide, first published in 2009 and updated in March 2011 with new research, The Wallace Foundation highlights what it has learned about how to improve the academic and enrichment opportunities we provide for our children, both in and out of school. The research findings and other resources cited in this document offer policymakers--federal, state and local--practical guidance on: what an effective school leader actually does; how the training of school leaders can be improved to meet the tough demands of their jobs; and what districts need to change to better support and evaluate principals so that effective leadership practices are recognized and reinforced, and instructional improvement becomes everyone's top priority. The report also highlights what public and private leaders throughout entire cities need to do to ensure that the after-school hours and summer months are times of enrichment and growth for all children. (Contains 46 footnotes and 16 resources.) [For the earlier edition, see ED506739.]
