Leadership for Increasingly Diverse Schools provides both practicing and aspiring leaders with the theory, research and practical guidance to lead socially just schools. Today’s schools are growing more pluralistic and diverse and leadership is central to reversing long-standing trends of educational inequities, exclusion and disparate school outcomes. This book helps readers sharpen their awareness of how multiple dimensions of diversity intersect as well as develop strategies for working with students of all socioeconomic statuses, races, religions, sexual orientations, languages and special needs. Leadership for Increasingly Diverse Schools provides school leaders the tools to foster teaching and learning environments that promote educational equity and excellence for all students.
