Overview
Strong instructional leadership has a positive impact on student learning. Instructional leaders provide focus and direction to curriculum and teaching, establish conditions that support teachers and help children succeed, and inspire others to reach for ambitious goals. Effective instructional leaders understand the difference between leadership and management and find time for both.
