ABSTRACT
The authors assert that, although the research-based knowledge about principalship continues to grow, there is a paucity of practical information about how to perform the essential tasks. They consider the principals of each of the 25 schools in the Breakthrough High Schools project, all of whom successfully led schools that serve large numbers of students who are potentially at risk of failure. In highlighting the strategies implemented at these schools, the authors seek to address information such as how principals develop and then act upon an understanding of supporting teachers, the steps principals take to promote student learning, and how principals transform schools and foster powerful teaching for all students.
