The Power of the Principal
When you enter into conversations about education with people, it’s natural and easy to reflect on who we had as a favorite teacher or coach. We can all describe that one adult in our lives who made the difference, left a lasting impact, and potentially, redirected the trajectory of our lives. There is no question about the important role teachers played in our lives.
At AWSP, we believe wholeheartedly in the importance of teachers, but also feel just as strongly in calling attention to one of the most under-recognized and overworked group of educators in the system, school principals. Effective principals are foundational and essential components of a successful educational system. Simply stated, principals matter.
