In his recent report, States as Leaders, Followers, and Partners, Dr. Paul Manna, professor of government and public policy at William & Mary, reflects on evidence from two Wallace Foundation initiatives that encouraged states to play a more active role in developing high-quality principals. He notes that while distinct, both endeavors “convey quite clearly that state policymakers have invaluable roles to play in advancing the principalship.”
On Tuesday, April 25, NASBE, with partners NCSL, NGA, and CCSSO, hosts Dr. Manna who will share key insights and lessons on the pivotal role state policymakers can play in advancing effective school leadership. This webinar will also explore how state policy leaders—whether on the state board, state agency, legislature, or in the executive—can work together and with their communities to support a pipeline of high-quality principals.
