Calling all teachers! What do you need to teach your students effectively?

My focus is on k-12 teachers, principles, administrators, etc. I know everyone is going to say money, but think outside of that please. Give me specifics.

Examples: leadership development, cultural understanding, curriculum (what subjects?), social project ideas, positive social platforms, online books, management training...

Thank you for your help and input

    Mar 11 2012: I don't know what is inside and what is "outsude of the administrative day-to-day." Could you clarify what you mean by either inside or outside the administrative day to day in reference to student learning? Once you do that, I would be happy to try to help.

      Mar 11 2012: I guess I'm thinking more along the lines of tools that can be accessed online to help supplement structured curriculum. Videos with lessons from content experts, free knowledge resources, what kind of info for these resources, a database for current trends in education, etc. Any specific insight into these types of things?

      I'm working on an open source project and I'm trying to get some insight into some specifics.
