Copeland, Margaret Leitch; Gimilaro, Susan; Sullivan, Nancy – Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, 2011
When directors sit down to advertise for new staff, it is often not a happy moment.

The…

Anderson, Michelle – Educational Management Administration & Leadership, 2012
This article argues that while notions of collective leadership, such as distributed or shared, are nominally more inclusive, barriers to inclusive ways of thinking about and relating to one another will be multi-faceted (past and present) and formidable to change. This argument emanates from a critical review of research literature and an…

Robertson-Kraft, Claire; Duckworth, Angela – Teachers College Record, 2014
Background/Context: Surprisingly little progress has been made in linking teacher effectiveness and retention to factors observable at the time of hire. The rigors of teaching, particularly in low-income school districts, suggest the importance of personal qualities that have so far been difficult to measure objectively. Purpose/Objective/Research…

Alejandro, Zeke; Garland, Sarah; Kennedy, Suzanne; Van Soelen, Thomas – Learning Professional, 2017
Early childhood centers and classrooms perpetually dance between being a "center" or a "school." To many educators, the word "school" usually presumes K-12 students. It often means the school is part of a larger entity, like a district or a school board. To parents, school might connote importance or deference to a…

While the retirement security landscape has changed drastically for most workers over the last twenty years, traditional defined benefit (DB) pension plans remain the overwhelming norm for K-12 teachers.
