McIver, Monette C.; Kearns, Jacqueline; Lyons, Cherie; Sussman, Mel
Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL)
Created for the Stupski Foundation, this document synthesizes recent research and theoretical literature on leadership practices needed to support the success of underserved urban students of color. The report identifies four options for creating and supporting successful school leaders of underserved students: (1) Redefine the role of the school principal; (2) Develop a culturally responsive leadership preparation program; (3) Expand effective leadership preparation and retention programs; and (4) Refine effective leadership evaluation and support programs. An appendix provides a description of the review method, including a general explanation of McREL's approach and descriptions of the particular procedures used for each phase of the review: identification of key hypotheses and research questions, literature search, identification and cataloging of finds, and generating and communicating recommendations. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures. A list of references reviewed but not cited is included.)
