"The bottom line is that, if you work in a low-performing, high-poverty school, the stakes are simply higher to improve student learning." I couldn't agree more.

Thank you for this post. I could not agree with you more. As an assistant principal for the last 10 years, I have observed the exact same things in schools where I have served students. I have also found that principals do not receive the support that they need in order to understand the structure and meaning of "instructional leadership". Rather, their time is spent executing administrative tasks far removed from exploring the quality of instruction in the building until it is time for recorded observations. Assumptions that administrators know and understand what instructional leadership should entail is having a detrimental impact on the weakest students in the district.
