"Principals Younger and Freer, But Raise Doubts in the Schools"

From today's NYT:


NYT discussion of pros and cons of young principals trained at leadership academies v. those promoted through the ranks. The paper's analysis indicates that in NYC, schools led by graduates of the New York City Leadership Academy for aspiring principals "have not done as well as those led by experienced principals or new principals who came through traditional routes."

Compounding the demands on new young principals in Pittsburgh may be assignments to head and be accountable for a wider range of grades, such as K-8 or 6-12.
