RAND Expert to Discuss How 'Principal Pipelines' Can Benefit Students


Susan Gates, a senior economist at the RAND Corporation and a professor at the Pardee RAND Graduate School, will speak about her recent research that found how “principal pipelines”—a strategic approach to the hiring, preparation, evaluation and support of school leaders—can improve schools.


Gates will discuss:

  • Feasibility: How were districts able to implement principal pipelines, and if so, what changed as a result?
  • Effectiveness: What was the overall effect of principal pipelines on key school-level outcomes?
  • Affordability: Are principal pipelines cost effective?
