Certified Educational Principal, CEP

Belonging to a particular profession does not automatically guarantee that the service you provide is a professional one. Hence, Directing as a professional is a hard thing to do because it encompasses many roles to be done well.

Education research shows that most school variables, considered separately, have at most small effects on learning. The real payoff comes when individual variables combine to reach critical mass. Creating the conditions under which that can occur is the job of the principal.

 Through all this work, we have learned a great deal about the nature of the school principal’s role, what makes for an effective principal and how to tie principal effectiveness to improved student achievement.
