Educational Administration in a Pluralistic Society.
Capper, Colleen A., Ed.
This book is a collection of essays on the link between administrator leadership and equity.

Capper); (2) "The Context of Educational Administration and Social Class" (Laurence Parker and Joan Poliner Shapiro); (3) "School Reform: Introducing Race, Culture, and Ethnicity into the Discourse" (Pedro Reyes, William Velez, and Robert Pena); (4) "Gender Equity in Schools" (Charol Shakeshaft); (5) "Responding to the Sexual Diversity of Faculty and Students: Sexual Praxis and the Critically Reflective Administrator" (James T. Sears); (6) "The Social Construction of Disability in Education: Organizational Considerations" (Kathryn D. Bishop, William Foster, and Kimberlee A. Jubala); (7) "Schooling in Rural and Small-Town America" (Patricia A. Schmuck, Richard A. Schmuck); (8) "Educational Administration and Developing Countries" (Benno Sander); (9) "Articulating Values and Ethics in Administrator Preparation" (William D. Greenfield); and (10) "Administrator Practice and Preparation for Social Reconstructionist Schooling" (Colleen A. Capper). An index is included as well as references at the end of each chapter. (JPT)
