This book explores the challenges that school administratorsface in ethnically diverse contexts. Based on an empirical study, itshows how principals do or do not promote inclusive practices in theirschools. The various chapters cover principal perceptions of, andresponses to, racism and antiracism, school community relationships, and difference. Also addressed are administrators' efforts to learnabout diversity and to educate others in their school communitiesabout it.This volume is the first of its kind to specifically target schooladministrators and ethnic diversity. While collections of essays andindividual articles have explored general and specific aspects ofdiversity, no book to date has targeted leadership and ethnicaldiversity specifically, is supported by empirical data, or follows aconsistent theme throughout. This book will be of interest to schooladministrators, prospective administrators, teachers, graduatestudents, academics and all others who are concerned about education, leadership, diversity and inclusion.
