Fen English, Eaves Distinguished Professor of Educational Leadership, has assumed the presidency of the National Council of Professors of Educational Administration.

The NCPEA is the oldest professional organization of higher education faculty in educational administration in the country. It works to serve the interests and needs of professors of educational administration and practicing school leaders, and to improve the practice and study of educational administration. English was elected president-elect of the organization last year.

He assumed the presidency earlier this month during the NCPEA’s annual conference. He will serve through August 2012.

Also, English, in conjunction with Rosemary Papa, has released a new book entitled "Turnaround Principals for Underperforming Schools." The book deals with practical strategies for school leaders to improve student achievement. It was published by Rowman and Littlefield of Lanham, Mass.
