Division A Fireside Chat: Strengthening School Leaders' Understandings of the Intersections of Identity, Culture, Language, Heritage, and Justice Conceptualization.
Fri, April 17, 2:15 to 3:45pm, Swissotel, Lucerne Level, Lucerne III
This session will examine intersections of identity, culture, language, and heritage and how school leaders can realize justice for students and families who are educationally marginalized, dispossessed, and excluded. School leaders' identities are shaped by personal funds of knowledge, beliefs, and longstanding assumptions; and identity shapes leaders’ responsiveness to student language, culture, and heritage. It is at this intersection of identity, culture, language, and heritage at which justice can begin to be conceptualized and enacted. In this session, critical scholars of education leadership, education policy, language, and culture will dialogue on research, preparation, and frameworks for strengthening school leaders’ pursuit for education justice.
