Free alternative program trains principals to serve in high-needs schools Jessica Bies, The News Journal
Organizers say an innovative program that trains its participants to serve as principals in high-needs schools could help Delaware educators deal with the effects of poverty and trauma.
The program, called Lead for Delaware, works with educators who are well-suited to serving at-risk students. Launched in fall 2015, its first cohort graduated in September.
Though run by Teach for America, Lead for Delaware takes candidates from all backgrounds and requires only that they have a master’s degree and three years of full-time, highly effective teaching experience.
“Our ideal candidate has deep ties to Delaware in some way,” said Angela Harvey-Bowen, senior managing director for school leadership at Teach for America Delaware. “We really want our leaders to see their role as part community organizer and part instructional leader.”
