Principal Considerations: Super Parent or Super Pain?
Marshall, Joanne M.; Hamrick, Florence A.; Goodman, Phyllis
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v12 n4 p37-47 2009
This case highlights teacher and family conflict about how best to meet the needs of a 9th-grade student with a disability. The student's teachers view his highly involved mother as interfering with their work. The student's mother views her involvement as advocating for her child. Aspiring administrators are invited to consider how best to resolve these competing tensions, especially given their status as a new principal in the school and the long history of educational inequity toward students with disabilities and students of color. Key questions are asked about social justice and social capital as well as ISLCC standards of establishing vision, culture, and community. A brief review of relevant literature introduces discussion questions on these topics. (Contains 1 note.)
