State Policy Is Key to Building Strong Leaders
von Frank, Valerie
Journal of Staff Development, v31 n2 p18-22 Apr 2010
Collective, comprehensive and cohesive are the words Gene Wilhoit uses to talk about education reform that involves multiple levels of the education system--states, districts, and schools. Today it is widely accepted that education leadership is crucial to improving student performance, and Wilhoit, executive director of the Council of Chief State School Officers, has persistently called on states to take on a larger role in standards-based reform and to create policy that supports improved leadership. This article presents a conversation with Wilhoit about his views on the alignment of the three levels of the system to create the kind of leadership that can lead to real reform and improved student learning.
