Linking Research to Public Interest


Accountability, Administrative Preparation and Social Justice in Georgia (PDF)
Cynthia I. Gerstl-Pepin

The research suggests that administrator preparation programs need to be more proactive about developing programs that foster leaders adept at strategically advocating for social justice.

Social Justice in New Jersey: Equity Issues and Beginning Principals (PDF)
Edith Rusch

This project was designed to probe the degree to which beginning and aspiring administrators in the state of New Jersey are engaged in learning experiences related to social justice issues. The actions were designed as an intentional intervention--a collection and use of data to foster a conversation that potentially can affect members of New Jersey school communities. At this time, many New Jersey educators are preoccupied with court-ordered adjustments in funding mechanisms intended to increase access to high quality learning for all children. However, the complexity of enacting the regulations often overshadows the meaning behind the court’s decisions. In fact, some educators appear to have minimal ideological commitment or behavior sets that suggest social inequities are an important issue.
