Principals are often called the second most crucial in-school influencers (after teachers) of student learning. But what should the principal and other educational leaders do in order to maximize student achievement? One of the best-known leadership authors in education, Michael Fullan will focus on what school and district leaders need in order to have deep impact on teacher and student learning as they link to state policy. Fullan shows how principals have been boxed into a narrow role that undercuts their ability to develop the whole school. He sheds light on how, in times of crisis, it’s all too easy for principals to do the wrong thing—to take actions that are ineffective or even counter-productive, particularly when they don’t feel entirely in charge. But even in the toughest of external conditions, there is always leeway for action. Fullan explains how leaders should forgo individualistic solutions in favor of collaborative effort. He shares how principals can foster the professional capital of teachers and get far more accomplished for all students.
