Effective principals have a positive influence on student learning outcomes, as McREL’s analysis has previously found.

McREL researchers Samantha Holquist and Marisa Crowder collaborated with members of student voice organizations in Oregon and Kentucky to provide us with a deeper level of understanding about what may be shaping students’ engagement in the school community.
