We're looking for a few good principals!

Education World's Principal Files articles focus on the important and practical elements of the school administrator's job. Our P-Files contributors include school principals from around the world who share their tips for dealing with issues that all school leaders face.

Would you like to add your name to the group of principals who are willing to respond to an occasional e-mail?

What Can You Expect After Joining the List?

From time to time in the months ahead, you may receive an e-mail message inviting you to respond to a question that will require no more than a few sentences in response.

Examples include:

  • What is the one factor you consider most important in hiring a new teacher?
  • What was the biggest challenge you faced on the job today?
  • What team-building exercises work the best for your school?
  • When several students opt out of standardized tests, how do you communicate these actions to the larger school community?

If you are contacted, there is no obligation to respond. 

What will Education World do with your responses? Either you'll be quoted in an Education World story (and you'll receive advance notice of this) or we may request a bylined article from you on a topic of interest.
