Deconstructing and Reconstructing Educational Leadership, Policy, and Practice in Increasingly Pluralistic School Contexts

In this symposium we discuss and offer new lenses for researching and practicing education within shifting contexts, using Arizona as an exemplar. Arizona’s schools’ challenges arise from sociopolitical and sociocultural tensions, which are increasingly prevalent in schools nationwide. We present four studies that focus on Arizona educators and students navigating, negotiating, and asserting (or silencing) their voices and identities amidst restrictive, colorblind policies and social/institutional structures, thus implying new approaches to education in complex contexts.
