This webinar dives into findings from The Role of Assistant Principals: Evidence and Insights for Advancing School Leadership. The comprehensive study suggests that assistant principals could become more powerful forces in advancing school improvement and equity.
Based on an exploration of 79 studies published since 2000, along with analyses of national survey results and data from two states, the researchers conclude that assistant principals are uniquely positioned to help make progress toward a number of goals from promoting equitable outcomes for students and contributing to a diverse pool of high-quality principals to addressing principal attrition and teacher shortages.
The lead researchers share highlights from this study:
Ellen Goldring, Patricia and Rodes Hart professor and chair, Department of Leadership, Policy and Organizations, Peabody College of Vanderbilt University
Mollie Rubin, research assistant professor, Peabody College of Vanderbilt University
Mariesa Herrmann, senior researcher, Mathematica
A team of panelists then reflect on the implications of the findings. They include:
Michael Casserly, executive director of the Council of the Great City Schools
Beverly Hutton, chief programs officer, National Association of Secondary School Principals
Debra Paradowski, 2020 Assistant Principal of the Year.
