Empowered principals are key to improved schools
When Maia Janelidze became principal of Public School #44 in Khoni, Georgia she quickly realized that she had a lot of authority but didn’t have the resources or training to run her small, rural school effectively.
She has used the skills she gained from financial management training and the daily indicators provided by the standards for principals to create a realistic budget for the school. Now that funding for her school is adequate, the school has been able to renovate several classrooms and plans to equip a library to improve students’ IT skills.
