EDAD 5360 - Leadership for Social Justice

3.0-3.0
5360. 3 hours. The situation of PK-12 schooling for school-dependent children in the United States points to various inequities (Connell, 1993; Hodgkinson, 1995; Jackson, 2011; Land & Legters, 2002; Larson & Murtadha, 2002). In addition to disadvantaging poor and/or school-dependent children, females, special needs children, racial and ethnic minority children, second language learners, and children of recent immigrant parents are often disadvantaged. These circumstances call for responsible, socially-just leadership that seeks to redress institutional injustice and to saturate culturally-and socially-responsive teaching and learning throughout the educational institution.
