Management Counts for Good Education

I have always thought that there has been little public discussion on poor school management (principals, especially) and leadership (school boards, especially).  Too much attention has been given to teachers.   Teachers lack support and motivation by school leaders.

Of all the factors common to successful schools, it is puzzling that so little weight is given to leadership. In the film Waiting for Superman, excellent teaching is rightly given credit as a major factor in student achievement, but there is no discussion of the exceptional principals leading the schools shown.
