Books Info:

International Handbook of Educational Leadership and Social (In)Justice free pdf The International Handbook on Educational Leadership and Social (In)Justice creates a first-of-its-kind international forum on conceptualizing the meanings of social justice and leadership, research approaches in studying social justice and combating social injustices, school, university and teacher leadership for social justice, advocacy and advocates for social justice, socio-cultural representations of social injustices, glocal policies, and leadership development as interventions. The Handbook is as much forward-looking as it is a retrospective review of educational research literatures on social justice from a variety of educational subfields including educational leadership, higher education academic networks, special education, health education, teacher education, professional development, policy analyses, and multicultural education. The Handbook celebrates the promises of social justice while providing the educational leadership research community with concrete, contextualized illustrations on how to address inequities and combat social, political and economic injustices through the processes of education in societies and educational institutions around the world.

In the 1990s, Ira facilitated the development of leadership standards in the state of Louisiana. He is the associate editor of the International Journal of Leadership in Education. He has been writing on the topic of leadership for social justice for over ten years beginning with a 2002 article titled, Educational leadership and social justice: Practice into Theory published in the Journal of School Leadership. He also co-authored Radicalizing educational leadership:Dimensions of social justice. Recently, he has taken his social justice platform titled "social justice as an educational construct" to Malaysia, Scotland, England, and Australia. Ira believes that this Handbook goes beyond rhetorical support for social justice and its publication must be a continuing step in the worldwide struggles to recenter education around the concepts, methods and actions for social change and justice. Dr. Carolyn M. Shields is professor and dean of the College of Education at Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan. Previously she was a professor of leadership in the Department of Educational Organization and Leadership at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and the University of British Columbia. She is past president of the Canadian Association for Studies in Educational Administration, and former Canadian representative to the Board of the Commonwealth Council for Educational Administration and Management. Her teaching is in the area of transformative leadership, deep democracy, equitable policy, social justice, and research methodology. Her research focuses on how educational leaders can create learning environments that are deeply democratic, socially just, inclusive of all students' lived experiences, and that prepare students for excellence and citizenship in our global society. These interests are reflected in her presentations and publications-over 100 articles, numerous chapters, hundreds of conference and keynote presentations, and nine books-the most recent of which is Transformative leadership in education: Equitable change in an uncertain and complex world, published by Routledge. She has received recognition for both her teaching and her career contributions to the field of educational leadership.
