Leadership for Increasingly Diverse Schools provides aspiring leaders with the theory, research, and practical guidance to lead socially just schools. Today, schools are growing more pluralistic and diverse and leadership is central to reversing long-standing trends of educational inequities, exclusion, and disparate school outcomes. This book helps readers sharpen their awareness of how multiple dimensions of diversity intersect and develop strategies for working with students of all socioeconomic statuses, races, religions, sexual orientation, languages, and special needs. Leadership for Increasingly Diverse Schools helps school leaders understand how to create school communities that foster teaching and learning environments to promote educational equity and excellence for all students.Special Features:Each chapter focuses on a specific dimension of diversity and discusses intersectionality across other areas of difference, including: ability/disability, linguistic diversity, sexuality, race, religion, socioeconomics, gender, and social frontiers.Chapters synthesize literature, provide practical strategies and tools, and include school level and district level cases illustrating examples of inclusive leadership.End-of-chapter resources point readers toward further discussion of conceptual elements, practice connections, and research applications.
