The fall 2012 issue of Transforming Lives, a magazine from the Texas A&M College of Education and Human Development, focuses on factors that help students be successful in school. One of these factors is leadership, and this article includes the findings of a recent study by Texas A&M and the University of Michigan on the effects of McREL’s Balanced Leadership® program on a cohort of elementary principals in Michigan. The researchers found that principals receiving the training reported higher levels of knowledge and involvement in their school’s curriculum and instruction and assessment programs, higher levels of efficacy, and a greater likelihood of creating a positive school climate. Furthermore, turnover rates in these schools were lower than in those schools where the principals did not participate in the program.
