Nearly half of our nation’s schools are failing and low income children of color are being disproportionately affected as a result. Research has shown that 25 percent of the students' performance can be directly linked to the quality of the school’s principal. This fact means that a single person can determine one-fourth of a school’s overall impact on its students. With nearly 50 million public school students, over three million public school teachers, and less than 100,000 school leaders, the quality of school leadership is a critical policy lever to consider in order to ensure the neediest students in this country receive the excellent education they deserve.

Join CHCI Secondary Education Graduate Fellow Nicolas Perilla as he leads a discussion on the steps the federal and state governments can take to create a system that improves the quality school leaders across the country and serves students most in need.
