What is the educational leaders role?
3 stages:
1. Initiation
2. Monitoring and adjusting
3. Evaluating
Research allows us to provide our students the best education possible. It’s not about finding what works, but rather what works best! We are able to implement new initiatives blindly, but research provides us the opportunity to ensure those initiatives are successful and continue to be.
Research aids us in creating a sustaining a continuous process in our curriculum.
