How Leadership Influences Student Learning - According to this report, leadership not only matters, it is second only to teaching among school-related factors in its impact on student learning. The authors conclude that leadership’s impact tends to be greatest in schools where the learning needs are most acute. Leaders can make a difference by setting directions, developing people – providing teachers and others with the necessary support and training to succeed - and by ensuring that the entire range of conditions and incentives in districts and schools fully support teaching and learning. An executive summary of this report also is available.
