University principal preparation programs have long faced criticism for inadequately training future principals to meet the job’s demands, especially leading high-needs schools to improved teaching and learning. The video series Principal Preparation: A Roadmap for Reform explores how universities can improve their programs.
Episode 1: The Case for Change uses commentaries by education leaders and experts to provide an overview of early implementation by two university programs—North Carolina State and Florida Atlantic University—under the mentorship of the exemplary Ritchie program at the University of Denver. This introductory video explains why universities and school districts are coming together to prepare principals and the research on effective programs.

The video series is part of a major $47-million initiative at Wallace to improve university training of future principals. The University Principal Preparation Initiative builds on 15 years of Wallace-supported research and experience about what makes for effective principals and their “pre-service” training at universities. The initiative seeks to explore how university programs can improve this training so it reflects the evidence on how best to prepare effective principals.
A study on the first year of the effort found that universities, school districts and others were able to form a firm partnership that led to a vision for better university principal training and concrete planning to enact it. Read the report here: https://www.wallacefoundation.org/kno...
