Indiana Reforming Principal Qualification System

The Indianapolis Star (3/19, Butrymowicz, Elliott) reports, "Indiana is poised to dramatically overhaul the way it determines whether educators are qualified to become principals," noting that next year, the state "will abandon its mostly multiple-choice test to receive the administrator license required to become a principal or vice principal. Instead, the new test will feature 'real practical, applicable scenarios -- case-study kinds of things -- that actually show that you know what you're talking about,' said Marg Mast, director of educator effectiveness and leadership in Indiana's state department of education." The piece reports that other states are considering similar changes.
