Meeting AYP: Affective or Effective on School Leadership?
Management in Education, v27 n4 p159-163 Oct 2013
"The commander of our ship knows that the eyes and ears of the shipmates will provide valuable information; that when combined with the experience and knowledge of leadership will navigate the ship to clear waters and bountiful lands" (Intertech, 2011). This analogy is reflective of the critical issue of meeting AYP (Adequate Yearly Progress) measures because it has made it very difficult to lead, teach, and learn in schools today. Therefore, as the analogy of ships above demonstrates, in order to traverse the rough waters that are the pressures of the daunting AYP, all the members of the ship [school], or the stakeholders [leaders, teachers, students], need to work together to plan and tackle AYP. Using pertinent questions created after reviewing literature on how stakeholders feel about AYP, research was conducted via surveys with stakeholders at a New York City school building that showed all the necessary parties must work together to meet AYP successfully.
