Legislative Action: Rural School Principals Meeting

Kelly Latterman, Ryan Anderson 8/3/2016

In June 2016, 14 lawmakers from 12 states descended on Denver to tackle leadership issues in rural schools during the Legislative Action: Rural School Principals meeting. While at the meeting they developed an understanding of the research, best practices and policy strategies available to their states to improve rural school principal preparation, recruitment and retention. Legislators worked with experts and colleagues from around the country to apply lessons of research and practice to the policy challenges surrounding rural school principals in their own states.
