Racial-Equity Policy as Leadership Practice: Using Social Practice Theory to Analyze Policy as Practice
Feldman, Sue; Winchester, Ilana
International Journal of Multicultural Education, v17 n1 p62-81 2015
This, primarily theoretical, paper takes up the longstanding problem of the disconnection between education policy and leadership practice. The authors propose the use of social practice theory as a tool for educational leaders at the state, school district, and school levels, to eliminate the disconnection between policy design and leadership action. Using Oregon as an example, the authors illustrate a relationship between equity-policy design and leadership practice that may help identify weaknesses and strengths in equity-policy designs and ultimately support better equity policy for leadership practice.
