Transgender Day of Remembrance and a Prospective Student Open House: How One Student Inspired a School to Do Both
Fusarelli, Bonnie C.; Eaton, Lucy E.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v14 n2 p8-14 Jun 2011
This case study explores the challenges a school leader faced when her commitment to diversity was tested by a scheduling conflict. The school principal approved a Transgender Day of Remembrance but then realized that it was scheduled for the same night as the school's Open House to recruit prospective students. The case study provides an opportunity for both practicing and aspiring school leaders to explore a number of dilemmas related to social justice and equity. (Contains 4 notes.)
