Ironies and Limitations of Educational Leadership for Social Justice: A Call to Social Justice Educators
Capper, Colleen A.; Young, Michelle D.
Theory Into Practice, v53 n2 p158-164 2014
In this article that reviews this special issue, we identify 5 ironies and limitations of educational leadership for social justice: (a) the meaning of inclusive practice, (b) the intersection of identity and difference, (c) the emphasis given to student achievement, (d) the lack of policy and practice coherence, and (e) the separation of superheroes from critical collaborative leadership. Although we discuss each issue separately, these conceptions are interrelated and intersecting. We conclude with a call to educators for social justice to change their work in several fundamental ways.
