Improvement in the absence of talented school leadership is practically unheard of. But district leaders routinely struggle to find principals who are prepared to lead improvement efforts. In this webinar, you’ll learn why school leaders are so important, and what advocates can do at the state and district levels to improve the preparation, recruitment, and retention of strong principals.

Presenter: Karin Chenoweth, writer-in-residence, The Education Trust and author of Schools that Succeed: How Educators Marshal the Power of Systems for Improvement. Guest speaker: Steve Tozer, professor in Educational Policy Studies at the University of Illinois Chicago and founding coordinator of the UIC EdD Program in Urban Education Leadership.
