A coalition of public, charter and Catholic schools is launching a program to train prospective principals.
It’s a new pipeline for educators who want to become principals.
It’s called The Philadelphia Pathway to Leadership in Urban Schools, or Philly PLUS.
Who wants to be a principal in Philadelphia?

A new, on-the-job training program for Philadelphia public, charter, and parochial school leaders has selected its first crop of "transformational" principals, and is scheduled to be formally announced Friday.
