Principals – Academic Leadership

Here, a number of American Principals talk about how they put learning at the centre of importance in their schools, as part of an ASCD training video.

To my mind, there is no doubt that this is often a time management issue. It’s very easy as an Institution Head to get drawn in to so much administrative functioning, that the Head is left with little time to be instructional leader. Without this, there’s a risk that learning loses out because there’s more focus on the teachers than the learning outcomes for all the children.

Engaging all pupils in meaningful tasks, with a focus on the fact that they should all be learning is the most effective way to ensure effective learning outcomes.
