Leadership for Social Justice: Preparing 21st Century School Leaders for a New Social Order
Jean-Marie, Gaetane; Normore, Anthony H.; Brooks, Jeffrey S.
Journal of Research on Leadership Education, v4 n1 Jun 2009
At the dawn of the 21st century, there has been an increased focus on social justice and educational leadership (Bogotch, Beachum, Blount, Brooks & English, 2008; Marshall & Oliva, 2006; Shoho, Merchang & Lugg, 2005). This paper explores and extends themes in contemporary educational research on leadership preparation in terms of social justice and its importance for both research and practice on a national and international level. In particular, we examine various considerations in the literature regarding whether or not leadership preparation programs are committed to, and capable of, preparing school leaders to think globally and act courageously about social justice for a new social order.
