Title:  WWC Quick Review of the Report "The New York City Aspiring Principals Program: A School-Level Evaluation"
Description: The study examined whether schools with novice principals trained through the Aspiring Principals Program had higher student achievement than schools led by other novice principals.

The study included schools in New York City led by principals who were hired in 2004 or 2005 and had served as principal for three consecutive years. The analysis included 86 schools that were assigned a principal trained through the program and 319 schools whose principals did not participate in the program.

The study measured the effect of having a principal who participated in the Aspiring Principals Program by comparing the change in achievement of schools where a participating principal was placed to the change in achievement of comparison schoolsóin which a non-participating principal was placedócontrolling for school characteristics.
