Columnist: Why don’t educators want to become school administrators? | MASSP News | Scoop.it
Perhaps the biggest reason most teachers have little interest in leading schools is that the vast majority of those who enter the teaching profession do so because they want to work with students, not budgets and regulations.

It’s really about the principals

It’s really about the principals | MASSP News | Scoop.it

"Those seeking to improve schooling through efforts to increase teacher effectiveness and build teacher capacity are realizing that such efforts rely heavily on principal capacity and stability." - Ed Fuller

 

First, research has shown that high principal turnover often leads to greater teacher turnover, which negatively impacts student achievement. Second, emerging research and theory has found that principal turnover has direct negative effects on student- and school-level achievement. Finally, research suggests that regular principal turnover can lead to teachers not investing in any change efforts and learning to simply “wait [principals] out.”

 

Overall, the average tenure for a high school principal in Texas is just over three years— the average high school principal will not see her/his first freshman class graduate.

 

Rapidly turning over principals leads to more problems for the school in terms of greater teacher turnover, greater difficulty in recruiting well-qualified/effective teachers, and increased reluctance of staff to invest in reform strategies. All of these issues ultimately have a negative and long-lasting impact on the school’s achievement profile.

Ben Bempong's curator insight, July 31, 2015 7:18 PM

I did not know that principal turnover rate are so effective when it comes to teachers turnover and student achievement.  I guess this is because their is no consistentcy in leadership.  With the average tenure being three years in texas, that shows that the load of a principal is very heavy.
