Publisher's Summary:
Award-winning author and educator Linda Darling-Hammond examines the characteristics of successful educational leadership programs, and offers concrete recommendations to improve the five-hundred plus programs nationwide. If implemented, the suggested changes will result in a greater number of highly qualified, thoughtful, and innovative educational leaders. In this study funded by the Wallace Foundation, Darling-Hammond and a team of researchers evaluate eight principal-development programs. Their research reveals what effective programs look like, and what skills and knowledge participants in these programs gain.
