The Hidden Curriculum: Candidate Diversity in Educational Leadership Preparation
Karanxha, Zorka; Agosto, Vonzell; Bellara, Aarti P.
Journal of Research on Leadership Education, v9 n1 p34-58 Apr 2014
The authors describe a process of self-assessment attuned to equity and justice in the policies and practices that affect student diversity, namely, those associated with the selection of candidates. The disproportionate rate of rejection for applicants from underrepresented groups and the unsystematic process of applicant selection operated as "hidden curriculum" affecting the opportunities for the program to enhance meaningful relationships among diverse groups of students. The authors describe institutional and sociopolitical conditions, and individual actions reflecting a faculty's "will to policy". Faculty efforts supported and challenged systemic change to increase racial and ethnic diversity among aspiring educational administrators.
