Leading is teaching: Real-Life ways to connect theory to practice and address issues of social injustice in school culture



  • This chapter examines specific topics, lessons, and professional practices that translate theory into practice for those who prepare school leaders as well as those who lead schools. The discussion opens by exploring the idea of social justice through understandings of how language is used to create meaning. Next, instructional strategies to address uncomfortable dynamics inside critical discussions are offered. What concludes this chapter is a list of axioms that can be used in everyday leadership practice in both graduate classroom and in school systems.
