AA #3813 Culturally Responsive School Leadership: Moving from Theory to Practice
February 1, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm$225.00
First coined in the early 1990sa “cultural responsiveness” is a phrase that has become part of the educational lexicon but not a part of the fabric of educational practice. Seen as the antidote to the hyper marginalization of students of color and growing achievement disparities that plague our schools few understand what culturally responsive leadership looks like in practice. In this Illinois Administrators Academy three essential questions will be addressed:
What is culturally responsive leadership and why is it necessary?
What do culturally responsive school leaders believe?
What do culturally responsive school leaders do?
This workshop is based largely on the scholarship of Gloria Ladson Billings and Muhammad Khalifa.
