Principal Effectiveness and Leadership in an Era of Accountability: What Research Says - Recent work by Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER) researchers has advanced our knowledge base on school leadership and specifically principal effectiveness, by drawing on longitudinal state data to estimate the effects of principals for different kinds of schools and students.
