Attracting school leaders – Five-year initiative

 | 

The Wallace-Reader’s Digest Funds has pledged $4 million over the next three years to the New York State Education Department to help attract promising school leaders to the system.

The initiative aims to reform the ways school recruit, train and support their administrators.

The grant is part of a new initiative, Leaders Count, in which the funds will invest up to $150 million over five years to address the shortage of capable school leaders in the U.S.

“New York is in the midst of a campaign to raise the achievement of all children,” said Richard Mills, New York State’s commissioner of education. “Success at that task depends on leaders at every level with the knowledge and skill to help whole communities learn a better way to educate children.”
