Transformation Is Vital to Social Justice Leadership. Amanda Jo Cordova, Encarnacion Garza (University of Texas at San Antonio)

A one sided emphasis in traditional educator programs of coursework defined by their focus
on accountability and closing achievement gaps often detracts from the training of future educational leaders to engage in pedagogical practices developing their sense of critical collective consciousness as a means to facilitate ongoing, long-lasting transformative leadership capacity. It is through this transformative capacity that educators can emancipate themselves from the shackles of neo-liberalism to revitalize, re-envision, and redefine education.

This autoethnography used sense-making to understand how seven Black male students, a Black aspiring school leader, and a White university artist mentor understood the integration of sense-making as artmaking to re-envision and redefine educational practices by promoting social-justice-oriented work aligned with culturally responsive curricula and pedagogy in K-12 and leadership preparation.
