Diversity, Technology, and Policy: Key Considerations in the Development of Teacher Leadership.
Pugalee, David K.; Frykholm, Jeffrey; Shaka, Farella
School change can be greatly impacted by teachers who take an active role in leadership. Teacher leaders should continue to expand their roles and influence in effecting the types of school reform that will lead to sustainable change in the quality of education. Since professional development is key to change, this chapter will address three areas that have not been adequately emphasized in the delivery of professional development programs: diversity, technology, and policy. Teacher leaders must be provided with opportunities to develop skills necessary to provide leadership relevant to these areas. This chapter provides some perspective on the importance of these issues in reforming mathematics and science education and considers the roles of teacher leaders in influencing needed change.
