21st Century Principal : Current Issues in Leadership and Policy (ISBN10: 1891792067; ISBN13: 9781891792069)
ISBN13: 978-1891792069
ISBN10: 1891792067

Summary: The 21st-Century Principal offers imaginative, thoughtful discussions of major issues confronting today's public school principals. This collection by leading thinkers in the field of education, including Richard F. Elmore, Chester E. Finn, Jr., Marcelo M. Suárez-Orozco, Pedro A. Noguera, Belinda Williams, and Douglas B. Reeves, aims to provoke new thinking and inspire bold action, all with an eye toward improving public schools and the leadership abilities of
those entrusted to lead them in this new millennium.

Questions the book addresses include: How will school leaders respond to changes in immigration, technology, and social policy? What effect will changing standards and demands for accountability have on their job? What impact will privatization and choice have on public schools? What challenges does the black/white achievement gap present?

As Milli Pierce notes in her introduction, 21st-century principals have to be skilled at creating strong, committed teams that can help them run their schools. "If principals are expected to do it all, we can be assured of mediocre performance, not because they aren't capable but because we have asked them to be superhuman."
