Principal and superintendent program students are the future educational leaders of Texas.

Texas Public School Organization and Administration: 2020 provides future educational leaders with an effective background for success in leading a campus or district.

The objectives of educational leadership preparation programs are often pragmatic. There is the desire to teach the skills of leadership, legal analysis, and management that ensure success in the challenges of school administration. The development of these leadership traits increases employment opportunities and professional attainment for students. In addition, professors expect the development of the skills to correlate with success on the TExES certification exam.

Texas Public School Organization and Administration: 2020 addresses these pragmatic factors as it has evolved along with educational leadership programs to meet the needs of professors and students.
