THE STRUGGLE TO RETAIN PRINCIPALS: It’s a common problem, but Chicago’s put numbers to it. The Chicago Public Education Fund just released Chicago's Fight to Keep Top Principals, based on survey results from 423 principals within Chicago's public schools.

The report also includes some potential solutions, including reducing compliance and targeted coaching. Edtech could also play a role in personalizing PD for principals--another need the report cites.
