Abstract

Today's aspiring principals may have a lot to worry about, but they also have a lot to celebrate. Not only do today's principals have to worry about the mental and physical challenges of the principalship, but they also are living in a time of tremendous possibility for systemic change. The possibility for raising the level of student performance is not only unprecedented, it is to be celebrated.

Principals must have a tremendous desire to lead in today's world. They must believe every child can learn and help that child discover his/her particular way of learning. They must have a commitment to lifelong-learning and desire high expectations from others. They must demonstrate discipline in six leadership performance areas: visionary. instructional. organizational. collaborative. ethical and political. Finally. they must demonstrate determination. They must model the quality of not giving up. and work at problems until they are overcome.
