Culturally Responsive School Leadership focuses on how school leaders can effectively serve minoritized students—those who have been historically marginalized in school and society. The book demonstrates how leaders can engage students, parents, teachers, and communities in ways that positively impact learning by honoring indigenous heritages and local cultural practices. Muhammad Khalifa explores three basic premises. First, that a full-fledged and nuanced understanding of “cultural responsiveness” is essential to successful school leadership. Second, that cultural responsiveness will not flourish and succeed in schools without sustained efforts by school leaders to define and promote it. Finally, that culturally responsive school leadership comprises a number of crucial leadership behaviors, which include critical self-reflection; the development of culturally responsive teachers; the promotion of inclusive, anti-oppressive school environments; and engagement with students’ indigenous community contexts. Based on an ethnography of a school principal who exemplifies the practices and behaviors of culturally responsive school leadership, the book provides educators with pedagogy and strategies for immediate implementation.

The purpose of this grounded theory qualitative study was to understand the impact of culturally responsive leadership on low-income minority middle school students and, if any, the impact that leadership has on students. This study utilized an expert panel to create a purposeful sample of low income /minority school leaders using the culturally proficient rubric (Graham & Lindsey, 2011). The schools identified by the expert panel were triangulated with the New York City School Quality Report for alignment. Six schools participated in the study; three schools identified as more culturally responsive, and three schools identified as less culturally responsive. A total of thirty-four educators across three boroughs in New York City middle schools participated in this study. Six administrators and twenty-nine teachers were interviewed. Interviews were conducted individually and as focus groups that consisted of four to five teachers in each group. Publicly available data was collected and analyzed. The responses from interviewees were analyzed to explore the impact of culturally responsive leadership on closing the achievement gap for low-income minority students in low income high minority schools. The findings from this study indicate that most participants believe culturally responsive school leaders have seven identified traits. The traits are: caring and nurturing; providing students with access to information and resources; the provision equity of opportunities, exposing students to enriching experiences, exhibiting moral courage, practicing social justice behaviors, and supporting the school community and aligning curricula to students' culture. When school leaders implement these traits, they positively impact the academic performance of students.

The rapid growth of diversity within U.S. schooling and the heightened attention to the lack of equity in student achievement, school completion, and postsecondary attendance has made equity and diversity two of the principle issues in education, educational leadership, and educational leadership research. The Handbook of Research on Educational Leadership for Equity and Diversity is the first research-based handbook that comprehensively addresses the broad diversity in U.S. schools by race, ethnicity, culture, language, gender, disability, sexual identity, and class. The Handbook both highly values the critically important strengths and assets that diversity brings to the United States and its schools, yet at the same time candidly critiques the destructive deficit thinking, biases, and prejudices that undermine school success for many groups of students. Well-known chapter authors explore diversity and related inequities in schools and the achievement problems these issues present to school leaders. Each chapter reviews theoretical and empirical evidence of these inequities and provides research-based recommendations for practice and for future research. Celebrating the broad diversity in U.S. schools, the Handbook of Research on Educational Leadership for Equity and Diversity critiques the inequities connected to that diversity, and provides evidence-based practices to promote student success for all children.

The purpose of this study was to investigate how school counselors who are culturally responsive make meaning of their practices and the challenges faced in meeting the needs of a diverse population. Specifically, my study concentrated on examining real life experiences/practices that resulted in a rich explanation of the phenomenon studied. Hearing the voices of school counselors describing their practices and experiences in providing culturally responsive counseling services contributed to better understanding of the strategies, programs, and actions that define culturally response counseling. This dissertation includes an overview of the study, a review of the pertinent literature, a detailed description of the study’s methodology, an analysis of the findings, and a discussion about the implications for the school counseling field.

As educational policy trends converge in many countries, such as demands for greater accountability, decentralization, and more culturally sensitive practices for an increasingly diverse student body, there is growing interest in cross-national comparisons and generalizations about leadership qualities and practices that result in successful schools. US and Cross-National Policies, Practices and Preparation: Implications for Successful Instructional Leadership, Organizational Learning, and Culturally Responsive Practices fills that need by bringing together triads of scholars from the International Study of Successful School Principals (ISSPP) to make direct comparisons among policies and practices in the U.S. with those in other national contexts, and then to draw implications for improving leadership preparation. This book provides theories and empirical case study examples of instructional leadership, organizational learning, and culturally responsive practices as they are shaped by political, economic, and cultural factors in seven different national contexts. The seven countries featured in this book are the U.S., Australia, Denmark, England, Sweden, Norway, and Cyprus. The book begins with an overview of the ISSPP, including its underlying theoretical framework, its research methodologies employed, its limitations and how analyses of the project’s data and findings evolved from the first phase of the study to its current focus.

The racial academic achievement gap, identified as the underachievement of racially, culturally, ethnically, and linguistically diverse (RCELD) students and documented by research, is visible in all education organizations (Griner & Stewart, 2013; National Center for Education Statistics, 2019; O’Connor, Hill, & Robinson, 2009). Since the United States Supreme Court decision of Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas, repudiating the concept of separate but equal, laws concerning the need for equal education access have been enacted and educational policies have been created and implemented, but this achievement gap continues to exist (Williams, 2011). Culturally responsive leadership and culturally relevant pedagogy are research-based theories and practices that work towards meeting the needs of the growingly diverse population (Gay, 2018). A mixed method design utilized the explanatory sequential approach to research what culturally responsive beliefs, espoused practices, and supports elementary public-school principals convey in high performing urban schools. The design included the use of surveys and interviews to collect anonymous data from principals on their experiences in these roles and the influences they convey at their urban elementary school to narrow the racial academic achievement gap. Survey data collected with the use of Qualtrics Survey Software and interview data collected through individual interviews were conducted. Audio recordings of the interviews were transcribed and reviewed for themes. Creswell’s six steps of data analysis and interpretation were utilized to analyze and interpret the data collected. Multiple reliability and validity measure occurred in this study. The results are compiled for future implications and recommendations are made.
