Being a child is tough. As adults, it’s easy to look back on childhood with a powerful longing: The lack of responsibility, the freedom, the naps. It’s all very alluring through rose-tinted glasses.

Preparing Leaders For Deeper Learning Authored by Karen Cator, Bonnie Lathram, Carri Schneider and Tom Vander Ark Download the Full Paper In partnership with: Digital Promise
In the paper, Preparing Leaders for Deeper Learning, released jointly by Getting Smart and Digital Promise, we assert the need for programs that prepare and develop school and district leaders who will create and sustain deeper learning environments.

How must leader preparation and ongoing professional development evolve to fully enable teacher and leader success in this new environment? The paper captured a diverse set of voices – ranging from current practicing principals to representatives from pioneering programs and organizations whose missions address educational leadership challenges. The team reviewed the literature on leadership development and spent a year tracking the progress of high-performing educational leadership programs, talking to practitioners and researchers at conferences and events to learn from others passionate about this work; this yielded dozens of conversations and 50 guest blog contributions to inform the research, resulting in a paper that is a compilation of many voices, perspectives and ideas.
