MCH Releases 2020 Principals’ Assessment Report

Annually, MCH Strategic Data reaches out to K-12 principals across our nation’s public schools to assess the state of K-12 education. This year, we received responses from over 700 principals – with representation in every state across the country.

NOTE: responses were compiled and analyzed when the COVID-19 pandemic was in its infancy and should be viewed with that in mind.

This year's report includes the top concerns, most prevalent needs, and how leaders want to be introduced to new products and services. Some of the key highlights include:

  • Adequate funding continues to be a key concern across the country. In the 2019 survey, principals listed adequate funding as the top concern, as well.
  • Many principals report student readiness as a top concern. Implementation of new and innovative ways to help students succeed after graduation is becoming more popular.
  • Principals listed economic fragility of families as a major concern in this year's report with student readiness and effective educational environments most impacted.

Over the years we’ve learned that while not all K-12 principals struggle with the same issues, all are key influencers of how districts invest their limited resources. Districts prioritize spending based on expressed needs from principals, teachers, students, and parents. Principals often share similar concerns, and at the beginning of this year, those concerns centered around funding, student readiness, and economic fragility. View and download full report here.

Best wishes,
