Ezzani, Miriam D.; King, Kelley M. – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
While case studies have documented how teachers can either ameliorate or exacerbate situations of ignorance or hate in the classroom toward Muslim students, the role of educational leaders in U.S. public schools remains negligible. In response, this paper aims to develop the knowledge base of educational leadership as it pertains to the jihad or…

Brooks, Melanie C.; Mutohar, Agus – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
It is urgent that education scholars explore how Islamic values shape (and are shaped by) Muslim school leader beliefs, given the heightened anti-Muslim sentiment present in western contexts. Yet, there is a lack of scholarship on non-western approaches to leading schools. To address this gap, we drew from extant Islamic and educational leadership…

Barakat, Maysaa – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
The acrimonious and hateful rhetoric dominating the public and political arenas and the tide of division and nationalism gaining support in many parts of the world (Arnova et al. 2013. "Comparative education: the dialectic of global and local." Lanham, MD: Rowan & Littlefield) seem to be reflected in the US school system. As…

Khalil, Deena; DeCuir, Amaarah – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
In this empirical study, we describe how Muslim female school leaders prioritise equity, community, and resistance when leading American Islamic schools. Similar to prior critical feminist studies, this research centres female leaders' agency as an emancipatory praxis of resistance to injustice and oppression, aligned with our core assumptions of…

Schechter, Chen – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
This article proposes the communal leadership framework as a leverage for reciprocal educational policy in uncertain and turbulent times. It is argued that leadership at the policy level should abandon the seductive dance with the "self" where knowledge resides at a specific location in the system (policy-makers' perceptions and agendas)…

Horsford, Sonya Douglass – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
Trump's vow to "make America great again" seeks to usher in a policy agenda reminiscent of an era that served as a boon to the rich while devastating poor, working-class, Americans, particularly people of color. His education policy and budget blueprint prove no exception, signalling troubling priorities for those who value strong public…

Samier, Eugenie A. – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
This essay examines the emergence of a new Zeitgeist that has profound implications for education, particularly in the US. Following the dominance of neoliberalism, changes in society are reviewed that have been identified by many authors from a number of disciplines that are becoming more influential including globalisation, digitalisation, the…

Courtney, Steven J. – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
This article focuses on the changes that the election of Donald Trump enables in education policy domestically and in education discourse internationally. I argue that Trump's own charismatic leadership style is a distraction from the privatisation that it is facilitating through Betsy DeVos, Trump's appointment as US Education Secretary. I draw…

Faircloth, Susan C. – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
In this manuscript, I outline what I perceive to be the potential implications of the Trump presidency for the education of American Indian children and youth. In doing so, I argue that failure to provide adequate educational programs and services for American Indian children and youth represents an abrogation of the federal government's trust…

Niesche, Richard – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
In this article, I argue that we are witnessing a new phase or 'theory turn' in the field of educational leadership. These more critical perspectives in the field of educational leadership have typically been marginalised by the larger body of orthodox approaches due to a perceived lack of focus on best practice and 'what works' discourses, and…

This article addresses the role of the state and state formation in the establishment of national education during the nineteenth century and early twentieth century.

Gobby, Brad; Keddie, Amanda; Blackmore, Jill – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
Discourses promoting the benefits of school autonomy have floated freely internationally since moves in the 1980s to greater devolution in the UK, New Zealand, the USA, Australia and Sweden. The most recent Australian version, Independent Public Schools (IPS), grants school leaders more latitude over aspects of their work. But this autonomy is…

Smith-Norris, Martha; Hansen, Jennifer – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
During the last decade, scholars and journalists in Canada raised alarm bells about the efficacy and viability of graduate humanities programmes across the country. The Department of History at the University of Saskatchewan decided to analyse the outcomes of its graduate programmes at the Doctoral and Master's levels, from 1990 to 2015. We…

Kelly, Matthew Gardner – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
In this article, I use a case study of education in nineteenth-century Oregon to place the twentieth-century phenomenon of 'shopping for schools' within a broader historical context. In doing so, I make three points. First, documenting previously unacknowledged links between the spread of public education and efforts to market land, I suggest that…
