Gooden, Mark A. – Educational Foundations, 2012
Much of the history and study of leadership in general has omitted "other" perspectives in the literature. The same is true in educational leadership in general, and the principalship in particular.

Webb, P. Taylor; Briscoe, Felecia M.; Mussman, Mark P. – Educational Foundations, 2009
In this article, we critically analyze how neoliberalism, as a political-economic discourse, uses surveillance to produce a stratified student body for economic roles.

Books, Sue – Educational Foundations, 2006
To the now-expansive literature on the causes and consequences of segregation in schooling and of inequality in educational opportunity in the United States, the author would like to add a call for more attention to the politics of school districting--that is, to how and why districts are created, in the service of whose interests, and with what…
