School systems nationwide have instituted training programs to groom aspiring principals. For example, Wake County, N.C., reimburses teachers who participate in its "Leaders for a New Millennium" program for 50% of what it costs to take required school leadership classes. The National Association of Elementary School Principals estimates that 40% of the 93,000 principal positions in the U.S. could be vacant by 2006.
