Tuesday night TV: A Principal Story
Late notice, but this looks good… a PBS documentary about the challenges principals face in turning around low-performing public schools and raising student achievement (including a CPS principal.)
THE PRINCIPAL STORY portrays the challenges principals face in turning around low-performing public schools and raising student achievement. This intimate, emotional one-year journey is seen through the eyes of two dynamic principals: one in only her second year in the Chicago Public School System; and the other, a seven-year veteran in Springfield, IL. The film reveals the struggles these leaders face as they keep their focus on improving teaching and learning amid the competing demands of managing their staffs and engaging their students and communities.
On Tuesday at 9:30 pm and Saturday at 3:00 am (better set the Tivo for that one.)
