This special pullout section is the second of three Education Week annual reports examining leadership in education, a topic of critical concern at a time of ever-increasing expectations for schools. Each report includes a mix of explanatory articles and research findings analyzed by the Education Week Research Center.
The project is underwritten by a grant from The Wallace Foundation, which seeks to support and share effective ideas and practices that expand learning and enrichment opportunities for all people. Its three current objectives are:
• Strengthen education leadership to improve student achievement;
• Enhance out-of-school learning opportunities; and
• Expand participation in arts and culture.
Read from a complete index of stories included in this years report.
