A Lesson Learned About School Leadership - Global Learning - Education Week

A Lesson Learned About School Leadership - Global Learning - Education Week:

"The latest MetLife Survey of the American Teacher focused on the challenges of school leadership. The opinion data shows that job satisfaction among principals and other leaders is at a 25-year low.

Most of the dissatisfaction is attributed to outside pressures. Academically speaking, one of those forces is the transition to the new Common Core State Standards by 46 states and Washington, DC. The Standards are designed to be rigorous and relevant to the real world, and ultimately, to prepare the rising generation to be successful in the global economy. While many agree with the mission, allocating resources to address shifts in how to teach and learn in this new way is challenging. The survey reports that principals and other educators' jobs have become more complex in this already complex world, adding greater burden to an already stressed-out profession."
