Getting Churched and Being Schooled: Making Meaning of Leadership Practice
Arnold, Noelle Witherspoon; Brooks, Jeffrey S.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v16 n2 p44-53 Jun 2013
Personal and professional histories can provide insights into educational leadership and administrative practice. Drawing on a life and professional historical narrative of a Black, female principal, this case explores the intersection of race, spirituality, and social justice based on excerpts from a life narrative of a Black, female principal. This case provides opportunities to explore spiritual and religious aspects of educational leadership practice, and also explores issues of church and state while asking the reader to consider their epistemological assumptions relative to sociocultural dynamics of leadership such as race, gender, and social justice.
