Principals Work 60-Hour Weeks, Study Finds


This Education Week article spotlights findings from a new REL Northeast & Islands at EDC study--the first nationally representative study of how principals use their time--and quotes EDC researcher Heather Lavigne: "Being a principal is definitely more than a typical 40-hours-a-week job," said Heather Lavigne, an education researcher at the Education Development Center Inc., who led the study for the regional lab. "It shows the difference between what people consider a regular full-time job and what principals have on their plate."
