Principals Matter, commentary for the Learning First Alliance

While much of the conversation surrounding student success focuses on classroom teachers, Woodrow Wilson EVP and COO Stephanie J. Hull reminds us of the importance of principals in a commentary for the Learning First Alliance:

In fact, principals account for at least 25 percent of a school’s total impact on student achievement, according to research conducted by organizations such as ASCD and the Wallace Foundation. Principals create the necessary conditions for teachers to succeed—the individual support, the technology, the facilities, the interface with parents and policy leaders.
