Wallace-Reader’s Digest Fund gives $50,000 for Study of Successful Leaders in High-Poverty Schools
The Wallace-Reader’s Digest Fund has given $50,000 to Dr. Jacobson, University of Buffalo professor of educational administration in the GSE’s Department of Educational Leadership and Policy, for a study of successful leadership in elementary and secondary school settings that serve high-poverty communities.
The research will focus on learning more about school leaders’ influence on student performance, and how they work with teachers, staff, parents, members of the community and the students themselves to improve student learning.
The grant is part of the Wallace-Reader’s Digest Fund’s “Ventures in Leadership” program, the goal of which is to help nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations and public schools around the country test innovative ideas for improving educational leadership.
The grant is part of “The Campaign for UB: Generation to Generation,” which is in its final phase and has a goal of $250 million.#
