Challenging the Dominant Narrative: Critical Bilingual Leadership ("Liderazgo") for Emergent Bilingual Latin@ Students
Wiemelt, Joseph; Welton, Anjale
International Journal of Multicultural Education, v17 n1 p82-101 2015
The growing "Latinization" of the United States is drastically changing the demographics of the students served in PK-12 public schools (Irizarry, 2011). To understand how educational leaders can best serve this changing student population, we used Critical Bilingual leadership, "Liderazgo," to interrogate the aim to create a culturally and linguistically responsive school. We found that "Liderazgo" was operationalized across the following themes: promoting dual language programming as the foundation for equity; drawing on experiential knowledge as a strength; fostering relationships through transcaring; and exercising instructional bilingual leadership.
