Miller, Peter; Pavlakis, Alexandra; Bourgeois, Alexis
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v16 n2 p6-10 Jun 2013
This case was developed for use in a variety of leadership courses from contemporary issues to policy analysis or school-community relations. A narrative is presented about a superintendent, Kenny, who is faced with two new cases of student homelessness in his affluent suburban community. Students must consider the federal policy context (the McKinney-Vento Act) to analyze the narrative from the perspective of various stakeholders and develop a leadership response. In response to the case, students are able to demonstrate their understanding of federal policy, to identify the challenges of homelessness, and to formulate solutions.
