Newark Principal

This description of a principal of a school in Newark is spot-on for leadership in troubled public schools:

“He’s not the Joe Clark kind of tough… He doesn’t strong-arm kids. He knows that you have to show them that you care about them and won’t give up on them, and every kid, no matter how big, wants to feel safe. Then you just have to be consistent.”

That’s it.
