More than half of Iowa's school principals will be eligible for retirement over the next five years, according to a new study.

The Center on Reinventing Public Education at the University of Washington in Seattle estimates that the upcoming wave of principal retirements will be spread evenly across the state, affecting all types of schools, students, and communities, and giving state policymakers an opportunity to develop a statewide strategy for ensuring a supply of high-quality school leaders into the future.

Released this month, the study is the first of a series of state-specific reports from the center.
