The landscape of school and school district leadership has changed dramatically within the past ten years with the establishment of Charter Schools, Cyber Charter Schools, On-line Learning and Public-Private Partnerships, For-Profit Public Schooling and the use of External Management Organizations (EM Os) to operate schools in urban centers. These changes and the move toward externally mandated accountability measures place unique and unprecedented demands on school leaders generally and on urban school leaders in particular. Current students in the school leadership graduate programs work in many different settings and school organizations with many structures of governance. Recognizing the complexity of the role played by school principals, Temple prepares students to step forward to lead schools and communities as principals, curriculum supervisors and school superintendents.
