Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

Expanded and revised, this reader on key issues in social justice and school leadership is written by leading authorities in leadership and social justice. The accessible and practical text is filled with current information from the field, real-life scenarios and controversies, and student activities — all while challenging leaders, educators and researchers to be effective advocates for social justice. Demonstrating how the current realities in educational leadership training and in school practices can be refined or reconstructed to better meet students’ needs, the book provides an array of ways of understanding the effects of exclusionary practices as well as useful exercises and materials for those who will lead students and staffs to create equitable practices.

 

Recognizing that readers learn through multiple intelligences, Leadership for Social Justice intersperses poetry, quotes, editorial cartoons, evocative writing, and hands-on tools with research, theory, and recommendations for practice. The book is divided into 3 distinct parts: Re-defining Leadership for Social Justice, Preparing Social Justice Leaders, and Next Steps.

 

The revised edition of Leadership for Social Justice is extensively updated and includes two new chapters: one focusing on special education students and one focusing on children in poverty. The new second edition also includes information on possible next steps for school leaders currently in training.
