What if the principalship was a 9-to-5 job? Could you quit when the whistle blew, and go home with a clear conscience and a spring in your step? What if principals only worked 9 to 5 (or more realistically, 7 to 3) and couldn’t do any work outside of those hours? How would we approach our work differently?

What Makes a Principal Great?

What Makes a Principal Great? | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

A collective voice is rising that demands a more comprehensive route to school quality than the current test-and-punish system. And as we move closer to that path, we need to take a good, close look at how the actions of our principals impact the work of our teachers.  To do that, we have to start talking to the people they impact most directly: the teachers.
