Transforming Ed Leader Prep
“The current model of school leader preparation is ill-equipped to provide long-term answers to these problems. With an emphasis on seat time and a goal of graduating as many M.Ed. seekers as possible, as quickly as possible, many current programs lack a rigorous clinical experience and strong mentoring support. We need a new, more rigorous terminal degree to prepare school leaders.”
Woodrow Wilson Foundation President Arthur Levine writes for Real Clear Education on the need to transform education leader preparation programs, with the Woodrow Wilson MBA Fellowship in Education Leadership as a model. Now operating in Indiana and Wisconsin, the WW MBA Fellowship seeks both to prepare leaders who can bring all American schools up to world-class levels of performance and to develop a new gold standard for preparing education leaders.
