This chapter examines the roles of the educational leader without borders (ELWB) and the connections these leaders have to humanity in the lives of children and their families through the schooling process. The relationship between social justice complexities and global schooling practices that define education as a basic human right are explored through the field of education, as well, the social science perspective offered by Nancy Fraser's three dimensional lenses of economic, cultural and political that leads to participatory parity as social justice. Ten vignettes written by thirteen scholars from a variety of global schooling experiences document children's stories written in authentic contextual settings from Nigeria, Thailand, Iraq, Haiti, Native American Tribes, American Latinos and U.S. poverty among school age children. These vignettes portray the human conditions of schooling world-wide that the educational leader without borders must learn.
