A Dream Attained or Deferred? Examination of Production and Placement of Latino Administrators
Crawford, Emily R.; Fuller, Edward J.
Urban Education, v52 n10 p1167-1203 Dec 2017
More work is needed to engage the talents and empower Latino students to reach their full academic potential. We suggest that one potential cause for Latino student underperformance is the underrepresentation of Latino school leaders. Research suggests that school leaders who understand the cultural background and lived experiences of students tend to be more effective in improving student outcomes. This study explores the production and placement of Latino school leaders in Texas over two decades, and whether Latino educators who have obtained principal certification are as likely as their White peers to obtain a school leadership position.
