Training and Empowering School Leaders

 

 Tuesday, October 27,Training and Empowering School Leaders
 

School leaders have tremendous influence over the success of their teachers and students. But are schools doing an effective job of recruiting, selecting, and retaining great school leaders?
 

Are principals being trained effectively, and is there meaningful ongoing support? Are principals empowered to make decisions and challenge the status quo? If not, how do we do that? What's the right balance between autonomy and accountability? And do the realities of urban education make success less likely for school leaders? Join the Thomas B. Fordham Institute for an interesting and thought-provoking discussion of the unique leadership issues of urban school districts and an exploration of exciting new efforts around Ohio to attract, train, and retain great leaders.
