A Principal on Leadership for a Turnaround School – Part 2 |
(January 23, 2017) The school principal has a critical role in leading staff to educate every student on the campus. IDRA’s STAARS Leaders project has been guiding principals in San Antonio to view their work through a social justice lens by cultivating leadership competencies that lead to successful outcomes for all students, as described by the Chicago Public Education Fund. In this episode, we continue our conversation with Principal Gregory Rivers as he describes how he has brought these competencies to life in his school. In Part 2, he focuses on competencies of problem solving and building in others the confidence to lead. Gregory is interviewed Nilka Avilés, Ed.D., an IDRA senior education associate and director of IDRA’s STAARS Leaders project. Send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
