Sustainability Crisis: Time for Resolution
Garcia, Ray
Educational Leadership and Administration: Teaching and Program Development, v17 p33-46 Fall 2005
This article addresses the failure of sustainability of reform efforts in public school systems by reconceptualizing the perplexing notion of sustainability through a case study to discern the skill sets needed of principals to sustain reforms in urban settings. This study draws on perceptual data gathered from principals in 36 schools in one urban district. Findings show a difference in the ranking of skill sets among elementary, middle, and high school principals, suggesting the need for further investigation into the role of vertical continuity of leadership skill and its impact on sustainability. The article examines how leadership preparation programs can develop skill sets needed for leaders to sustain reforms in schools. (Contains 2 tables.)
