Leadership for education and learning in changing contexts

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Current policies emphasize evidence-based programs and common standards for all children yet today's schools serve increasingly diverse students. This chapter considers these tensions in relation to John Dewey's (1916, 1938) education theorizing proposed over a hundred years ago in an earlier time of tensions between standardization and diversity. At the same times, Dewey's theorizing did not give explicit attention to culturally responsive pedagogy or leadership as developed in contemporary leadership literature. The chapter concludes with recommendations for education leadership literature to further emphasize education theorizing in relation to effective and equity-oriented leadership for increasingly complex contexts.
