Coupling Changing Student Demographics with Evidence-Based Leadership Practices: Leading Hispanic Friendly Learning Organizations
Farmer, Tod Allen
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mid-Western Educational Research Association (Evanston, IL, Nov. 9, 2012)
The study assessed the need for learning organizations to implement evidence-based policies and practices designed to enhance the academic and social success of Hispanic learners. Descriptive statistics and longitudinal data from the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES) and the National Clearinghouse for English Language Acquisition and Language Instruction Educational Programs (NCELA) were used to identify trends that have impacted educational institutions over the last decade. NCES enrollment projections were then identified to be used as policy indicators leading to evidence-based strategic planning. The exponential growth in the Hispanic student population that has already occurred in the Southwest, and is projected to occur in many other parts of the country, will necessitate evidence-based leadership practices if institutions are to become, or remain, Hispanic friendly learning organizations.
