Educational leadership refers to the responsibilities of leaders in a school setting. These administrators might attract and hire educators, appropriately placing professionals where their talents could be put to the best use. These supervisors often work to create collaborative relationships with teachers, parents and students. 

 

Education in the United States is mainly provided by the public sector, with control and funding coming from three levels: state, local, and federal, in that order. The common requirements to study at a higher education level in United States will include your admissions essay (also known as the statement of purpose or personal statement), transcript of records, recommendation/reference letters, language tests
