About this book

This volume builds upon emergent understandings about educational leadership and policy in hopes of continuing to refine our understanding of what effective leadership means in linguistically and culturally diverse school contexts. The volume seeks to entrench a deeper understanding of the broader leadership policies and practices that promote the success of linguistically and culturally diverse students, while also recognizing that effective leadership can be highly dependent on context. It offers original empirical research that enhances an understanding of the interdependencies between leadership, culture, language, and policy (i.e., the mechanisms that engender or hinder successful stewardship of linguistic and cultural plurality).

The confluence of school leadership, linguistic diversity, and multiculturalism makes this volume unique, especially considering the pace at which global migration continues to accelerate, coupled with the need to accommodate an array of diverse learning needs in today’s schools.

He was awarded the UCEA summer fellowship in 2017 and also served as a UCEA Policy Associate in 2018. This book project was the result of work he completed in service to the aforementioned fellowship where he served under the direction of Dr. Jami Royal Berry at the Center for International Study of Educational Leadership. Currently, he is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy at the State University of New York (University at Buffalo).
