Though research tells that principals are key in raising student achievement, principals remain unsung heroes for the nation's children. Because they work on the front lines of education--student by student and class by class--to lead schools in preparing students for successful lives, it's possible to miss the entire significance of the principalship. In this article, practicing principals reflect on what they believe are the most powerful aspects of their jobs. The responses focus on principals using their voices to advocate for issues important to children and schools, making sure that schools educate the whole child, providing stellar instructional leadership, and leveraging relationships to benefit student achievement.
