A survey in Great Britain finds that nearly one-third of all teachers would like to become a head teacher (roughly equivalent to a school principal in the US).
This comes at a time when there have been several warnings about a shortage of people wanting to lead schools, especially in urban areas.
I wonder if a similar number of teachers in this country want to move into school administration.
Principal is not a job I’ve ever aspired to. Just never had that kind of temperament.
But I do admire the good ones, especially those who can lead while still being able to see the classroom through the eyes of their teachers.
