Using the experiences and words of seven public school principals who came to the field of administration committed to advancing social justice in their schools, this book presents a framework and 7 'keys' to social justice leadership (SJL). Although facing tremendous barriers, these leaders were ultimately successful in making their schools more equitable and just. They also made important strides toward closing the achievement gap through the use of humane and equitable practices. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
