What the Research Says
Support and Accountability for Public and Private Principals
New data from the National Center for Education Statistics find that principals at private schools tend to have more experience, 9.7 years on average leading schools versus 6.8 years for public school principals. Yet leaders of traditional district and charter schools were more likely to have participated in recent evaluations and professional development activities. The data come from a nationally representative sample of 10,600 traditional and charter public school principals and 4,000 private school principals surveyed in 2017-18.
