Preparing School Leaders to Work with and in Community
FitzGerald, Anne Marie; Militello, Matthew
School Community Journal, v26 n2 p107-134 2016
We used Q methodology, a form of factor analysis, to explore and establish correlations across the perceptions of key stakeholders (i.e., deans, faculty members, doctoral students) about how doctoral programs in educational leadership engage in work with diverse communities. Four distinct viewpoints emerged suggesting the ongoing need to: develop prerequisite skills (listening and dialogue); situate learning in the community rather than in the college classroom; move towards student- and community-led curriculum; and provide doctoral students with the hands-on experiential learning they request and require. Implications include the implementation of practical innovations of learning within diverse communities.
