Between Individual Accountability and Social Responsibility: Leadership as Mediating Praxis Against Social Injustices in Education. Patrick M. Jenlink, Stephen F. Austin State University

The purpose of this study was to examine the nature of social injustices as metanarrative in educational settings and the positioning of educational leadership as mediational praxis and counternarrative against injustices. The study focused on what constitutes social injustices in the educational setting and the intersection between injustice and social justice praxis. Narratives, as “social injustice” and “mediational” texts, were analyzed for language and action within/across discourse, illuminating patterns and relationships.

Social Justice Advocacy: Are Administrator Candidates Prepared to Lead? Bobbie Plough, Margaret Harris, Ardella Dailey, Peg Winkelman (California State University, East Bay)

Education in the 21st century requires school leaders who embrace school leadership for social justice to ensure all students are provided with equal access to a high quality education. This research represents a critical look at a department of educational leadership’s endeavor to assess candidates’ acquisition of leadership knowledge and skills, as de ned by the California Administrator Performance Expectations (CAPEs), concomitantly with the department’s mission to support the development of educational leaders for social justice.

The Principal as an Advocate. Tameka LaTrece Osabutey-Aguedje, Georgia State University

The purpose of this study is to examine characteristics of leadership in a high-needs, high- performing school through the voices of a principal, teachers, other leaders, and parents who interact within that context every day. Drawing on the distributed leadership theory, this study uses open coding case study methods to analyze interviews, artifacts, and publicity materials. The rationale is to explore personalized descriptions of experiences that contribute to developing a learning culture community.
