The New York City Aspiring Principals Program was established in 2003 to train future principals to turn around underachieving schools. This first systematic look at program-trained principals shows that after they led schools for three years, their students outperformed comparable children in English Language Arts. A follow-up study found that schools led by principals from the program had a steeper improvement trajectory in English and math than similar schools led by other principals.
