In the second of two reports on school principals, NPR's Wendy Kaufman visits a nationally recognized training program at the University of Washington. The Danforth Program offers mentors and real world experience to people who want to become principals. Discussions include child development, labor relations, and insurance liability, as well as special education and legal issues. Participants are encouraged to examine their values, strengths, and weaknesses, to better equip themselves for changing school environments.
