School Administrator, v62 n6 p24 Jun 2005
The authors of this article were recently privileged to spend five days with a group of 10 talented principals who have been charged with turning around academically low-performing schools in their respective districts. These principals were selected as participants in a Turnaround Specialist Program initiated by Gov. Mark R. Warner of Virginia and designed by a group of faculty from the Darden Graduate School of Business and the Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia. The first part of this program consisted of a five-day experience designed to help participants frame the issue and provide them with some conceptual and practical tools from the worlds of business and education for addressing the challenge they would face in fall 2004. This article describes what the authors learned from participating in this experience.
