Being Principal Is Hard, Many Quit.

The Hechinger Report (9/24, Tyre) reports “nearly 30% of principals who lead troubled schools quit every year.” The article shares the story of a new principal, Krystal Hardy, at a school in New Orleans as she learns what is expected of her and how to do it better. Due to the increased importance of standardized testing and teacher evaluations, principals are expected to do more to improve pedagogy and classroom learning than in the past. Hardy shares that a lot of her job requires soft skills to communicate effectively with staff and students, and she had to work long hours.
