Hanushek and Peterson on the Importance of Good Principals

School principals have an enormous impact on school achievement. Recently, Paul E. Peterson sat down with Eric A. Hanushek, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University, to discuss his recent report on the measurable impact of principals in public schools, "School Leaders Matter" by Gregory F. Branch, Steven G. Rivkin and Hanushek. The report appears in the Winter 2013 issue of Education Next.
