Foundation to train 10,000 principals

Bill Clinton and the Clinton Global Initiative unveiled a new plan today to provide leadership training for principals in developing countries. Over the next four years, 10,000 principals in Kenya, Ghana and India will work with the Varkey GEMS Foundation and the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). 

For the first year, 50 to 60 trainers will work with 500 principals in these countries, according to the UN News Center. For the next three years, the 500 principals will be charged with training their peers. The groups are estimating that up to 10 million children could benefit from the program.
