The Importance of the School Principal. Research Brief
Williamson, Ronald
Education Partnerships, Inc.
Research shows that effective leadership is essential in schools. When schools have effective principals they are far more likely to be effective and to positively impact student achievement (Davis, Darling-Hammond, LaPointe & Meyerson, 2005; Firestone & Riehl, 2005; Marzano, Waters & McNulty, 2005). Researchers have identified a set of leadership characteristics, that when present, impact school climate and student learning. Those characteristics are discussed later in this Research Brief. (Contains 8 online resources and 6 print resources.)
