May 5: Baruti Kafele Explains How To Transform Schools & Students

Baruti Kafele presents School Leadership Practices for Transforming the Attitudes of At-Risk Students

 The complex role of the educational leader is the most important role in bridging the attitude gap! In this high-energy, highly-interactive workshop, Principal Kafele discusses the characteristics of an effective leadership team in an underperforming school comprised of an at-risk student population. He will also out line what he did to lead the transformation of four different low-performing public schools in New Jersey. In his discussion on effective school leadership, Principal Kafele argues that before we can focus on closing the achievement gap, we must first focus on closing the attitude gap – the gap between those students who have the will to strive for excellence and those who do not. When the attitude gap of at-risk students is adequately addressed, the achievement gap becomes a “nonissue,” he contends. 

 An internationally-renowned education speaker and consultant, Principal Kafele is one of the most sought-after speakers for transforming the attitudes of at-risk student populations in America. He works with hundreds of schools and districts to assist them with closing what he coined, the “attitude gap” – the gap between those students who have the will to strive for academic excellence and those students who do not.
