Pushing Back and Forging Ahead: Making Principal Preparation Responsive to State and National Changes
Vogel, Linda R.; Weiler, Spencer; Armenta, Anthony
Planning and Changing, v45 n1-2 p210-227 2014
Various state and national forces are influencing principal preparation programs, including competition from online for-profit institutions, teacher evaluation, school accountability, equity, and Response to Intervention mandates that require university-based leadership preparation programs to re-examine and revise program delivery and content. The changes in the Educational Leadership and Policy Studies program at the University of Northern Colorado are described in detail and are presented in three categories: curriculum changes, accountability changes, and delivery changes. These changes illuminate the social, economic, and political forces to which a principal preparation program must be attuned and responsive in order to serve as a model for other programs to consider in an era of rapidly increasing demand for effective school leadership.
