The Role of Inclusive Principal Leadership in Ensuring an Equitable Education for Students With Disabilities

State education leaders have committed to ensuring that every student has the opportunity to succeed in the college or career path of their choice, including students with disabilities, who, across the country, continue to fare worse than their peers, as measured by learning and behavioral outcomes. Inclusive principal leadership is critical to addressing these challenges. Inclusive principals are well prepared to serve students with disabilities and support teachers across general and special education to improve outcomes. They create learning environments where all students, across backgrounds, can excel in school. And they distribute leadership and provide the resources necessary to support and retain effective teachers of students with disabilities.
