‘Principal Pipelines’ Can Boost Achievement and Reduce Turnover

The Wallace Foundation’s six-year, $85 million “Principal Pipelines” initiative led to notable gains in reading, math, and leadership turnover across more than 1,100 urban schools, according to a new study from the RAND Corporation.

The study, led by RAND Office of Research Quality Assurance Director Susan Gates, also found that some of the most effective elements of the initiative can be implemented at little cost.

Gates joins CPRE Knowledge Hub managing editor Keith Heumiller to discuss her findings and some important takeaways for districts and stakeholders across the country.
