Women of Color School Leaders: Leadership Schools Should Not Ignore
Haar, Jean M.; Robicheau, Jerry W.
Journal of Women in Educational Leadership, v7 n1 p33-41 Jan 2009
School districts are faced with challenges resulting from the changing demographics of the student population. Consequently, school districts are creating positive, multicultural learning environments. School districts intent on establishing multicultural learning environments should consider the contributions people of color, specifically women of color can make in leading the endeavor. This study highlights the insights and experiences of three women of color school leaders. Their stories demonstrate how leadership from women of color contributes to the development of positive, multicultural learning environments. Their stories provide insight for school districts as they seek effective leadership for their schools and for administration preparation programs as they prepare aspiring school leaders.
