George W. Bush Institute plans school principal program
from CBS News
For its first initiative, the George W. Bush Institute will focus on improving the performance of school principals. Former first lady Laura Bush was to announce the institute's formation of the Alliance to Reform Education Leadership. The alliance will consist of a network of school districts, universities and foundations offering educational programs to current and future school leaders. "If we do our job right, these graduates will be in very high demand," said James W. Guthrie, senior fellow and director of education policy studies at the institute. Guthrie said that the entities participating must meet certain criteria by, for instance, offering classes in areas including business and ethics and guaranteeing participants will spend time in schools.
