April 2022 | Advance Illinois

This webinar from Advance Illinois features Linda Darling-Hammond and a panel including an educator preparation dean and two district leaders. The webinar explores what the field knows about quality principal preparation and supports for equity and retention of leaders and what this means for the current state of the education field. Panelists reflect on how strong principals impact schools and communities, the importance of novice principal mentorship and coaching, and how strong partnerships between preparation programs and districts can support the development of high-quality principals.
