Who are public school principals and how have they changed over the last 20 years? How much do principals contribute to student achievement and other school outcomes? What makes a principal effective in terms of characteristics, skills, and behaviors?

These are the questions addressed in a synthesis commissioned by The Wallace Foundation on school leadership in the United States. The report finds that effective principals are at least as important – if not more important – for student achievement and an investment with unusually high pay offs.

On Tuesday, February 16 at 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET, lead researchers from the Urban Institute, Vanderbilt University, North Carolina State University, and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will share highlights from this study. Leaders from the Council of Chief State School Officers, Council of the Great City Schools, National Urban League, and University Council for Educational Administration will reflect on the implications of the findings.

Our Story

On February 26, 1917, during the first session of the first annual meeting of the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), President B. Frank Brown, principal of Chicago’s Lake View High School, gave the first annual address.

His opening remarks stated, “It is certainly most gratifying to find so many principals of secondary schools present, at this, the initial meeting of our new organization ... We have long had organizationsin which we have had the privilege of membership, but this is the beginning of one which is to be devoted primarily and exclusively to our own interests and needs.” In NASSP, “we shall find an organization devoted entirely to our interests and wholly within our direction and control. I cannot understand why we have been the last in the great profession of teaching to come to our own.”

As NASSP enters into its second century of school leadership, the association continues its strong tradition of providing a national voice for all school leaders, support for student leaders and activities advisers nationwide, and outstanding products and services to serve the education profession and support the association’s vision to develop great leaders in every school committed to the success of each student.

Thank you!

I'd like to share a rather unusual and free resource...parenting tips bumper stickers! Advancing Parenting, a Camarillo, CA nonprofit, produces parenting tips bumper stickers and makes them available at no cost to schools, businesses, organizations, clinics, and individuals. There are fifty-one in a set and each bumper sticker communicates a parenting behavior or practice generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. Just one will be read thousands of times! Bumper stickers are a unique and powerful way to educate everyone about parenting and prevent unsupportive and harmful parenting five, ten, twenty, fifty years down the road. At stoplights drivers and passengers point, smile, and nod. Conversations begin and often a phone is used to take a photo of the sticker right at the stoplight. Presumably, they are being shared on social media. It's wonderful to see! Sets of the stickers can be put in holders and placed on counters and tables so folks can select one or more for their cars. Visit www.advancingparenting.org to request this free resource. Use a computer...our website is not optimized for phones. Please share.

Hi Everyone, If any of you serve students who are the first in their families to attend a 4 year college or come from a low-income background, then you and your staff and students may benefit from the Virtual Advising Guide Below. I spent over 4 months completing this guide and today I am making it available to the public.I used my knowledge of the barriers that first-generation and low income-students (FGLI) encounter in education and translated them to online resources and videos. It addresses the various barriers they encounter accessing and succeeding in college, as well as transitioning out into the workforce or graduate school. This is for students at ANY level in their educational journeys, whether it be high school, college, or young professionals.It also encompasses the various sub-identities that intersect with FGLI students- Veteran & ROTC students, independent students with children, formerly incarcerated students, transfer students, students at Ivy-League Institutions. I have a section for Educators and other Professionals to help as well. The guide is FREE, I just ask that you USE and SHARE it. Share with your students, your teachers, your guidance counselors, your local college officials, superintendents, or governing officials. Share it with anyone you think may benefit or need it. If you would like a PDF or word copy, just send me a DM and comment in this post.

This book is for anyone who wants to learn precalculus and calculus in a fun and easy way. The book has clear explanations, gives simple problems with answers and explanations, and includes colorful, engaging illustrations and graphics. It will give students a huge head start with the advanced math that is introduced in high school. It is also extremely helpful for older students struggling at all in this subject. I wish my own daughter had had a book like this – that is why I wrote it! Here is the link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08GJBL5R9 Please check out my other, non-math-related book that focuses on fun, creative drawing and writing.

Hi everyone, I run an educational non-profit and we started running live streamed virtual field trips for STEM and social science classes (up to 300 students at a time). We're creating our new website right now and we're trying to figure out what the best way is for teachers to sign up. Could anyone spare a few minutes to speak? We're working our hardest so US and Canadian students have security clearance to explore factories making essential PPE, meet biologists working on COVID-19 solutions, but also video game design studios, architecture firms and a lot more, over the pandemic. Let me know!
