What is the role of districts, states and universities in building and supporting principal pipelines to improve schools and raise student achievement?

Leaders from all three sectors discuss the district role in implementing principal pipelines, how universities can improve preparation to meet hiring needs and how states can help to promote pipelines under the Every Student Succeeds Act.


When we think about universities and districts, and then the state role, I think it's all working in tandem to make sure that we're creating the best opportunities for principals.
