Variation in principal quality accounts for about 25 percent of a school’s total impact on student learning.

A school with a strong principal is seven times more likely to help students improve in math and four times more likely to help students improve in reading than a school with a weaker principal.

24 out of 25 teachers say that the number one factor in whether or not they stay at their school is their principal.

The Chicago Principal Partnership is working to ensure that every public school in Chicago is led by a strong principal.
