The article relates the author's experience of turning school principals into agents of change using leadership development practices from business, military, and governments. The author claims that the mission and vision at NYC Leadership Academy was to provide the system with principals possessing a robust grounding in instructional and transformational leadership who then can make a difference for children. The author believes the ultimate measure for success was the increased number of NYC students who graduated from high school and went to college.
