Principals Need PD Too

As I have started doing preliminary research for my dissertation I have discovered that high quality, relevant and sustainable Professional Development (PD) opportunities for principals (and building leaders in general) are limited.

Speaking Back to the Common Core by Thomas Newkirk

Speaking Back to the Common Core

by Thomas Newkirk

The Common Core initiative is a triumph of branding. The standards are portrayed as so consensual, so uni- versally endorsed, so thoroughly researched and vetted, so self-evidently necessary to economic progress, so broadly representative of beliefs in the educational community—that they cease to be even debatable.
