A new study finds that many of the barriers that principals cite as impediments to change and innovation are not true impediments and could easily be circumvented.
In a 2013 article for Ed Next, Rick Hess and Whitney Downs argued that school officials have far more freedom to transform, reimagine, and invigorate teaching, learning, and schooling than they believe they have.
The article was drawn from Rick Hess’s 2013 book, Cage-Busting Leadership.
