Principal's Role Changing, Says MetLife Survey - Leadership 360 - Education Week

Principal's Role Changing, Says MetLife Survey - Leadership 360 - Education Week:

"The state of teachers in our schools as reported by the new MetLife Survey of the American Teacher was the topic of our previous post. Now we explore the data reported by the 500 principals surveyed across the nation. But, let's first set the context.

The Wallace Foundation has published significant studies demonstrating the importance of the principal in school success and reports that the school principal, as leader, improves teaching and learning. The connection between the leader and the learner is not in question. Schools cannot be successful without a successful principal. This finding is substantiated by others that we have previously cited. Our schools will not become all we need them to be without these leaders. We know they are feeling pressure but we hope the rewards of the role keep them coming to school each day ready to engage the never ending challenges and to find moments of deep satisfaction and some of real joy. The data tell a less positive story."
