Principals of Inclusive Schools

Uploaded: June 15, 2011 |  0 Comments  | 

School leaders play an important role in promoting and sustaining change in schools. Without their efforts, schools cannot change or improve to become places where all students are welcome, and where all students learn essential academic and non-academic lessons in preparation for life in the community. Nowhere is this initiative more important than in urban schools where many students have been left behind, shunted aside, or asked to learn with poor or inadequate buildings, materials, and under-qualified teachers. Moving urban schools from current practices to inclusive practices requires the collective efforts of key stakeholders. Principals serve as catalysts for the key stakeholders. They play a unique role in helping students, staff, and parents to think and act more inclusively. Their role is to guide and support the course of change, drawing together the resources and people necessary to be successful.
