Editorial Reviews

A timely and thought-provoking text for present and future educational leaders. . . . In an educational climate driven by shallow conceptions of accountability and assessment that marginalize and punish, the insightful writings from informed voices are critical to the well-being of scholar practitioners in the field. The synergy of multiple voices committed to social justice and equity provide impetus for educators to remain centered and focused on constructing ethical leadership practices.
