Are quality urban principals a gift from above? The Center for Urban Education Leadership director Steve Tozer, PhD, thinks not.
At the “For Principals Only” workshop at the 7th annual Coalition of Schools Educating Boys of Color Conference, Tozer opened the workshop arguing the knowledge behind producing quality urban principals is in place, but the steps of execution remain lacking.
The College of Education’s Lisa Cushing jokes that Illinois is the “51st state and failing” in transitioning students with disabilities from school to adulthood.There may be nowhere to go but up, but the College’s Department of Special Education is ensuring the state’s rise is a rapid one with the first GET SET conference on May 18. The conference, focusing on interagency collaboration to enhance post-secondary outcomes for students with disabilities in Chicagoland, is part of a federally-funded grant project at the College.
