Leading from Every Seat: Empowering Principals to Cultivate Teacher Leadership for School Improvement. Version 1.0
Broin, Alexandra
New Leaders
Since 2000, "New Leaders" have prepared outstanding principals to transform America's underserved schools and communities. Yet the role has become vastly more complex and demanding--and principals, no matter how heroic, cannot do it all alone. Great leaders, by definition, bring out the best in their people to create exceptional teams. Through working with high-performing principals across the country, important insights into the critical role other school and system-level leaders play in accelerating school transformation have been gained, infusing schools with much needed expertise and capacity to strengthen teaching and boost student learning. For that reason, "New Leaders" increasingly turned their attention to supporting the development of teacher leaders, instructional leadership teams, and principal supervisors, helping to build communities of leaders within schools and across school systems. This white paper on teacher leadership draws on experience and supports efforts to advance the policies and practices that enable great school leaders to succeed. "Leading from Every Seat" includes a series of actionable policy recommendations--steps local, state, and federal officials can take--to support principals to cultivate teacher leadership and create vibrant schools where teachers grow and students excel.
