October is National Principals Month. For those of you linked into the mainstream media, you may find this a bit shocking. Educational leaders are increasingly criticized and dismissed. However, thanks to organizations like NASSP, we are provided a month to celebrate the fine work principals do to every day in schools to build rich learning communities, increase teacher capacity, and improve the learning experiences of all students.
UCEA applauds NASSP President Denise Greene-Wilkinson, a principal from Alaska, and all of the other leaders who brought us this important occasion to celebrate educational leaders.
