Back to Principals and Student Achievement: What the Research Says (EBOOK)
Everyone knows that principals are critically important to school success. But is their influence on students direct, or do they mostly act through teachers? Do they get results by appealing to the self-interest of staff members, or should they lead the staff to transcend self-interest to focus on the well-being of others? Are there differences between the instructional leadership behaviors of elementary and secondary principals, or between those of male and female principals?
This synthesis of nearly 30 years of research answers these and other questions and deepens your understanding of the principal’s role and influence in school improvement. Use this ideal resource for principal academies, leadership development programs, and self-help. (ASCD E-Book, 2003) Downloadable PDF File.
