Education leaders from coast to coast gathered in Phoenix last month for the American Association of School Administrators' annual conference.
Educational leadership was the focus of the American Association of School Administrators’ National Conference on Education in Phoenix last month.
One outstanding leader, Harlem Children’s Zone CEO Geoffrey Canada, provided a sobering wake-up call for U.S. policy makers, while another, National Superintendent of the Year winner Elizabeth Morgan, discussed the keys to her district’s success.
Meanwhile, Education Secretary Arne Duncan called for a change in how the nation’s school superintendents are prepared, saying their training should be more relevant to the challenges they’ll face in their jobs every day.
And in a private ceremony held in conjunction with the annual Century Club 100 meeting during the AASA Conference, eSchool News honored the 10 winners of its 2010 Tech-Savvy Superintendent Awards for their exemplary leadership in education technology.
