Failing Schools need Proven Leaders

It's the APS company line. It is their only justification for the principal shuffle.

It was repeated by the Journal editors this morning. The leadership of the APS has the support of the Journal.

The premise is specious. It has a nice ring to it; in particular if you believe it. But there is no proof of it; no data, no research findings.

The most compelling proof is self evident.

If all that was required to fix ailing schools was an exceptional principal; exceptional principals would make more money than superintendents; and there would be no failing schools.

... they don't

... and there are.
