Training Administrators for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse School Populations: Opinions of Expert Practitioners
Herrity, Vishna A.; Glasman, Naftaly S.
Journal of School Leadership, v20 n1 p57-76 Jan 2010
Cultural and linguistic diversity has changed the social fabric of today's schools. Currently, there is a wider variety of cultural, language, and family backgrounds than ever before. As a result of the increasing numbers of language minority students with unique educational and social needs, some studies suggest that principals need specialized training to ensure that all students have equal access to an education based on academic excellence and high expectations. Yet there are limited opportunities for aspiring administrators to receive specialized training for working with culturally and linguistically diverse school populations. As a result, many school administrators may lack the necessary preparation to develop policies and implement educational programs for diverse students. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
