In Case You Missed It: Kerri Briggs’ reply to “Consider the Principal”

April 24, 2012 by Lynn Parsons

Fawn Johnson posted this article in the National Journal on April 16, 2012 in response to a new report from the Center for Public Education that says a principal's responsibilities have grown beyond administrative duties to include core curriculum and student achievement goals, and many in the profession now feel the job is "undoable." The Alliance For Education Leadership’s (AREL) own Kerri Briggs, Director of the George W. Bush Institute’s Education Reform initiative, responded with information about AREL’s network of high quality principal preparation programs and said, “The AREL Network programs are teaching us a great deal about what needs to shift in the conditions and policies to accelerate principal success in the role. Principal autonomy over teacher hiring and firing, having the ability to spend time in the classroom observing teachers and providing them with real-time feedback, and limiting a principal’s focus on non-value added administrative duties will be critical if principals can effectively lead their schools.” This post was written by Lynn Parsons, AREL Program Consultant at the George W. Bush Institute.
