The report is by a team of researchers from Vanderbilt University and the University of Pennyslvania.

The School Principal as Leader

  • Report describes the five practices featured in the videos below
  • Video series follows 10 principals in four metropolitan areas through their workdays, showing how they use five practices of effective school leadership to improve teaching and learning in their classrooms.
