NAESP Advocacy Priorities:
- Secure federal funding for professional development and mentoring programs that will strengthen principals' knowledge of early childhood education.
- Require models of school improvement reform to judge principals based on training, expertise, and time afforded in the school building rather than simply relying on student assessment scores.
- Ensure that the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) draws from the experiences of local principals and educators who know students best. (Source)
