Inadvertent Exemplars: Life History Portraits of Two Socially Just Principals
Scanlan, Martin
Journal of School Leadership, v22 n1 p79-115 Jan 2012
This study creates life history portraits of two White middle-class native-English-speaking principals demonstrating commitments to social justice in their work in public elementary schools serving disproportionately high populations of students who are marginalized by poverty, race, and linguistic heritage. Through self-reported life histories of these principals, I create portraits that illustrate how these practitioners draw motivation, commitment, and sustenance in varied, complicated, and at times contradictory ways. (Contains 3 tables, 2 figures and 2 notes.)
