School administrators -- Attitudes; Teacher-administrator relationships; Student-administrator relationships;
In a time where the stakes are high and pressures from the federal and . state government are mandating that all students are to achieve and no child is to be left behind, school improvement needs to be at the forefront of education in the state of Iowa. "Student achievement is the cornerstone of the success of principals, and teachers are a key factor in the area of student performance" (Zepeda, 2004, p.12). Unfortunately, there is not one catchall solution to school improvement; the solution is unique to the school setting and the students it serves. As a result, it takes good administrators to seek out areas in need of improvement, communicate these needs, collaborate with staff and community, and implement strategies to make effective changes in the school environment.
