Principal Leadership: Sustaining and Deepening School Improvement in Low-Income Communities in North America
Jacobson, Stephen
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v15 n3 p7-10 Sep 2012
This introductory article presents the research background for this special issue of the "Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership". The article includes an overview of the International Successful School Principalship Project (ISSPP) as well as a description of the subsequent development of a multi-institution North American team. The primary focus of the emerging North American team has been to examine the work of principals who have successfully improved student performance in schools serving low income, high need communities. The article identifies the institutions currently participating in the project, the research that has already been published and the potential contributions to the literature that this body of work is hoping to make.
