Principals from Coast to Coast

Great leaders are essential to transforming historically underserved schools. This panel will explore what makes an urban principal's job so tough (e.g., declining enrollment, challenging politics, poor pipeline development, etc.) and how to ensure principals thrive (e.g., shifting District culture to service versus compliance mindset; better supports; targeted professioanl development, more funding, etc.). We’ll also explore the skills needed for the next generation of urban school leaders.
