The Role of Tomorrow’s Principal Tomorrow's Principal

    • Education

Welcome to this episode of Tomorrow’s Principal. I'm your host, Gene Pinkard. And I’m the Director of Practice with the Aspen Education & Society Program. In this limited series, you’ll hear national education leaders discuss how to understand and redefine the role of the principal as one that’s both doable and durable, meaning we’re talking about creating the role such that it doesn’t always require superhuman stamina, and it’s a role built for the long journey to sustained achievement and racial equity. 


One of our partners throughout the series is the Leadership Academy--an organization that’s already building durability and doability into principal support and preparation. We’ll be drawing attention to barriers that keep principals from becoming leaders for achievement and equity. 


We will also dig into what systems are doing to eliminate those barriers, and put their energy into the aspirations of their communities, and build on the research foundations of excellent school leadership. Paying attention to what we expect of principals and normalizing speaking about racial equity within the school system is a big part of that. 
Thank you for listening!
