    Numbers of Note / Elementary Principals Flying Solo thumbnail
      In a new survey, elementary school principals said they've had few opportunities to "work through problems of practice with colleagues."
      Percentage of principals who:
      Regularly (3 or more times in past 2 years) shared leadership practices with peers: 32%
      Regularly participated in professional learning communities: 56%
      Had a mentor or coach (in past 2 years): 23%
