A Principal Concern: Dallas Campus Leadership Keeps Changing
Teachers, parents and students in the Dallas Independent School District have seen unprecedented principal turnover in recent years. It’s fueled by demands, deadlines and personnel decisions implemented by Superintendent Mike Miles, who made principal quality a priority.
Some argue that Miles isn’t giving principals a fair chance to prove themselves. Research shows that principals need at least five years to improve a school. More frequent turnover hurts student achievement and school climate.
But Miles says the district’s principal corps is getting stronger.
