Educational leaders are seeing the increasing need for practical transformative models and theories to address academic, cultural, and socio-economic gaps separating learners at all levels of the educational system. Applied Critical Leadership in Education explores a leadership model arising from critical theory and critical pedagogy traditions that transforms status quo educational practices. Providing a range of diverse voices of practicing leaders from prekindergarten through higher education, explicit ties to theory and practice are drawn, making leadership for social justice accessible, feasible, and more practical for aspiring and practicing leaders alike.

Features Included:

Case Studies provide examples of applied critical leadership across early childhood education, elementary school, middle school, high school, district, and higher education levels.

Theory to Research Applications offer frameworks and key research complementary to cases.

Checking In presents questions to the reader to respond and further engage with the chapter content.

Opportunity Recognition and Critical Conversations offer strategies to challenge assumptions of common practices and begin conversations around issues of social justice.

Backpack includes online or print resources to supplement the material in each chapter.

Appendix provides a comprehensive example of qualitative case study research from design, to data collection, and analysis.

Applied Critical Leadership in Education provides an innovative way for aspiring and practicing educational leaders to think about and apply leadership practice suited for the educational challenges of today that are necessary for change.
