AREL's "Operating In the Dark" In The News

February 11, 2013 by Patrick Kobler

The Bush Institute’s Operating in the Dark: What Outdated State Policies and Data Gaps Mean for Effective School Leadership launched on Tuesday, February 5 at the Thomas B. Fordham Institute in Washington, D.C.  In less than a week’s time, the report has been well covered by several news organizations, including this commentary by principal and Education Week contributor Peter DeWitt.

See below for a list of articles about the groundbreaking report on state policies affecting the principalship. Join in the movement to help shine light on those states “operating in the dark” with their school leaders - the discussion about school leaders continues on Twitter under #IntheDark.
