Rigor is creating an environment in which each student is expected to learn at high levels,
each student is supported so he or she can learn at high levels,
and each student demonstrates learning at high levels (Blackburn, 2008).

The Most Important Job of a School Leader

Today, I'm working with a group of principals in an area school district.  One of the most common questions I receive from principals and other school leaders is, "What do you think is the most important job of a school leader?"  That one is easy--it's to remove barriers to student learning.  In other words, think from a perspective of "How would xxx positively impact student learning?"  If you take that perspective, how would it change what you are doing today?
