Welcome to The Modern Principal, a collection of thoughts to redefine the role of leadership in our schools.
In the education system today, principals are the least professionally developed out of all certified educators. Yet, their influence and impact on students is second only to teachers. Principals leave the profession at the same rate as teachers, yet this problem isn’t as widely discussed. And when the principal leaves, everyone in the school suffers, regardless of the replacement.
So, our platform is geared to three different school leaders: the potential principal, the practicing principal and the post principal.
We want to inspire the next generation of potential principals and empower them to become change agents for education.
We want to support practicing school principals, making the job more sustainable by providing resources and offering community.
Finally, we recognize the principalship is not sustainable for a lifelong career in its current state, and we want to highlight potential next steps for those passionate in leadership while still advocating for public education.
This is The Modern Principal.
