Principal’s leading is of pivot to the development of a school. A principal, as the general designer of a school, is accountable for organizing top-level design and profession planning for the overall development of the school. For principals, writing academic papers helps them not only improve their own attainment of educational theory and ability of logical thinking but also enhance their effectiveness to solve practical problems in their schools.

All in all, principal’s writing of academic papers helps lay a vital foundation for extension and innovation of a school.
