From Barriers to Breakthroughs: Principals' Strategies for Overcoming Challenges to Teachers' Transformational Learning
Drago-Severson, Eleanor; Pinto, Kristina C.
Journal of School Leadership, v14 n6 p653-685 Nov 2004
This nationwide qualitative study investigated how 25 school leaders, serving in schools with varying resources, perceive the practices they use to support teacher learning. The study discusses how these leaders understand the human resource challenges they face in supporting teacher learning and highlights their creative responses to these challenges across school contexts. Although the principals experience similar challenges, the challenges manifest themselves differently, and the strategies devised to overcome them are tied to the specific contexts of the leaders' schools.
