"Districts Matter": Cultivating the Principals Urban Schools Need. Perspective
Mitgang, Lee
Wallace Foundation
An effective school requires an effective leader, but great principals rarely just happen. They are cultivated. This Wallace Perspective draws on a decade of foundation research and work in school leadership to show how urban school districts can play a major role in ensuring they have principals who can boost teaching and learning in troubled schools. Key actions include establishing selective hiring procedures and providing mentoring to novice leaders.
