FORT LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) -- Teachers and principals from around the country are heading to the Army's Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth to study leadership development.
The three-day event starts Nov. 13 and is organized by the National Association of Secondary School Principals. Thirty educators are participating in what is being called an inaugural event to improve public school leaders.
Association executive director JoAnn Bartoletti says in a release the educators will study the Army's learning model, which focuses on continuous education for soldiers as they advance in their careers and meet changing missions.
The symposium will include hands-on exercises, discussions and other activities to make the connection between the Army model and the work of educators in high schools and middle schools.
