Walker, Allan; Quong, Terry
Peabody Journal of Education, v73 n2 p81-105 1998
Discusses how school leaders are increasingly torn between pressures for conformity and for diversity, arguing that pressure toward conformity undermines schools' ability to respond to diversity and suggesting that school leaders challenge the confines of sameness while exploring conceptions of leadership that value differences. Four strategies are presented to help leaders assist their schools in valuing and learning from differences. (SM)
