Complexity in Culturally Responsive Leadership: Uncovering Varied Learning Values in the Peruvian Andes. Joseph Levitan, Pennsylvania State University

Although there is a wealth of literature on culturally responsive leadership, more work still needs to be done to understand the complexity of culture in schools. This paper uncovers the complexity of culturally responsive leadership through an analysis of Indigenous students’ surveys about the values and goals of education in the Peruvian Andes. Findings highlight how culture is not homogeneous. There are a variety of values within cultures. Implications for educational leaders are then discussed.

Place, Space, & Race: Re-Envisioning Leadership for Social Justice Through Students’ Eyes Shelby Eden Dawkins-Law, Dana N. Thompson-Dorsey (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)

We examine the differences in classroom and building design between racially segregated and geographically isolated high schools. By looking specifically at classroom and building design, we hope to leverage current research that found that classroom design has an impact on student achievement. This topic is pertinent to educational leadership because, as the schools’ stewards, educational leaders must be prepared to create an environment where students from diverse backgrounds can be successful.

How Early College High School Principals Demonstrate Democratic, Socially Just, Culturally Responsive Leadership. Hattie Lee Hammonds, Clemson University

The purpose of this qualitative study was to examine how early college high school principals in North Carolina promote the success of the rst-generation students of color and low-income students they serve. The study examined these principals through two lenses: the traditional role of principals and a conceptual framework of democratic, socially just, culturally responsive leaders.

Bridge Builders and Culturally Responsive Leaders: The Lives of Muslim and South Asian Headteachers in Britain. Lauri Johnson, Boston College

This paper investigates the life histories of nine Muslim and South Asian headteachers who lead diverse British schools. Narrative analysis revealed complex social identities that intersected with their ethnic and religious backgrounds and geographic locations. Findings challenge essentialized notions of culture and an “encapsulated” Asian community and reveal culturally responsive school leaders who incorporate local funds of knowledge, combat stereotypes of Muslim communities, and couch the mandated teaching of so-called “British values” as larger humanistic concerns.
