Leadership for Justice or Just Leadership? Reimagining School Leadership amid Community Disinvestment, Gentrification, and Corporate Reform

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In an era of widening inequality, competition, and high-stakes accountability, both the study and practice of education leadership have yielded largely to what Cuban (1988) characterized as the “managerial imperative” of leadership in schools. This symposium examines, from multiple perspectives, how school leaders navigate, mediate, and negotiate the realities of community disinvestment, gentrification, and corporate reform in an era of severe educational inequality and injustice.
