New York City Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña on Successful Principals

June 18, 2015 at 12:25 pm

As a former principal, New York City Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña believes that a key factor in a school’s success is its leader. And this fall, principals will need to have more experience and more supervision.

Fariña led a discussion about the habits and strategies that make successful principals and high-achieving schools with four New York City principals at an event hosted by the city Department of Education, WNET and The Wallace Foundation. The event also shared WNET’s video series, School Leadership in Action: Principal Practices, which featured principals from different parts of the country along with their staffs, students and communities.

Andrea Vasquez reports on their conversation as part of American Graduate, a project made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to help local communities find ways to keep students on the path to graduation.
