The Empowered Principal: The School Leader’s Alternative to Career Burnout

by Angela Kelly Robeck

You Can Have a Satisfying Career

Are you a school principal who is completely fed up with conflicting priorities and misalignment in our nation’s schools?

It’s no surprise you feel overwhelmed and exhausted. Every day, you deal with federal and state regulations, district policies, and parental pressures. The expectations on educators are higher than ever, tempting many principals to consider alternate livelihoods. How amazing would it feel to take control of your own career and make decisions from a place of empowerment and clarity?

In The Empowered Principal, Angela Kelly Robeck, a former school leader and teacher for 25 years, shares with you:

  • How to manage feelings of overwhelm and frustration
  • The reason we stay in the job even when we feel burned out
  • How to confidently stay or peacefully go – and which to choose
  • Why we are afraid to speak up as educators
  • How to work each day with joy and accomplishment

The Empowered Principal is like Martha Beck’s Finding Your Own North Star meets Ken Robinson’s Creative Schools. If you are ready to reform the way you live and work as an educational leader, this is a must-read!



Early Childhood Policies and Systems in Eight Countries: Findings from IEA’s Early Childhood Education Study

by Tony Bertram

This report provides an overview of policy strategies on early childhood education settings (from birth to primary schooling) in eight countries. Data were collected using a policy questionnaire addressed to and completed by the National Research Coordinator(s) (NRC) of Chile, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Italy, Poland, the Russian Federation and the United States. The countries that participated provide interesting illustrations of early childhood education policy in action in a range of diverse contexts. Analysis of the systemic and structural results of ECE policy at national and, where necessary, subnational levels, enables transnational comparisons in policy and systems. Key policy changes, both underway and planned, are documented. These data reveal key findings in each of the five policy areas as covered in the questionnaire and this report: public policy; delivery models and providers; participation and enrollment; quality assurance systems; and expectations for child outcomes. In particular, the study aims to provide meaningful information for countries, states and jurisdictions across the world in relation to early childhood education, mapping the systems, structures and user pathways in place, along with the perceptions of stakeholders about the system, its functioning and impact. This comprehensive assessment of the wider policy contexts and settings for early childhood education includes teacher/practitioner qualifications, pedagogy approaches, and opportunities for professional development. Such information will enable countries to review their early childhood education systems in an international context.
