School leadership BES launched

The Ministry of Education’s new School leadership and student outcomes: Identifying what works and why: Best evidence synthesis iteration (BES) was launched by the Minister of Education, Hon. Anne Tolley, at the opening of the University of Auckland Leadership Centre on 4 November 2009.

The big finding of the BES is that when school leaders promote and/or participate in effective teacher professional learning this has twice the impact on student outcomes across a school than any other leadership activity.

The BES findings come to life for readers through vignettes and easy-to-read cases.These cases provide examples of principals and others in leadership activities that advance achievement and social outcomes for students.
