Vision 2021: Transformations in Leading, Learning, and Community
Principal, v88 n1 p22-23 Sep-Oct 2008
What will the profession of school principals look like a decade from now? What trends in society and education will affect how principals work? Since 2006, NAESP has been attempting to answer those and other questions. Looking ahead to 2021, the year the Association will celebrate its 100th birthday, NAESP spent 18 months examining trends in leadership, education, and society to make reasonable predictions about the world elementary and middle school principals will face. NAESP worked with the Institute for Alternative Futures to identify strategic issues that will affect schools, and conducted a series of focus groups with principal-leaders to discuss provocative forecasts, create scenarios for the future, and continually relate them to everyday experiences principals face today. This article lists nine provocative forecasts and presents an excerpt from the culminating report, "Vision 2021: Transformations in Leading, Learning and Community," which examines trends in leadership, society, and education to create reasonable scenarios of what schools might look like in the next 10 years.
