About this item

Whitaker (educational leadership, Indiana State U.) enumerates 18 practices of successful principals, based on his research, observations, and work as a principal, such as focusing on people instead of programs, treating everyone with respect, filtering out negatives, teaching teachers, hiring outstanding teachers, keeping standardized testing in perspective, being loyal to students and teachers, understanding high-achievers and being sensitive to teachers' needs, understanding emotion, and setting expectations at the beginning of the year. This edition addresses the impact of charter schools, limited funding, and technology, and the principal's sense of self, understanding the change dynamic, and dealing with ineffective and negative staff.
