Volume 109, Number 1 (2007)

This qualitative study addresses the roles of diversity coordinators in independent schools using the concept of tokenism as a lens for understanding their status in the school setting. Diversity coordinators experience a double vulnerability within the schools—first as people of color who are underrepresented in these institutions, and second by virtue of their role in addressing issues of “diversity” within the school contexts.

This qualitative study investigated how 25 principals from public, Catholic, and independent schools with varying financial resources understand the practices they use to support teacher learning. This research illuminates how these leaders understand the challenges (e.g., financial, human) they face in supporting teacher learning and highlights their creative responses to challenges across schools. This paper offers insight into another way to accomplish important national goals and points toward a qualitatively different way of leadership in support of teacher learning and development.

The study examines the content of instruction at a stratified sample of the nation’s principal-preparation programs. The findings suggest that these programs pay limited attention to considerations of accountability, aggressive personnel management, or the broader body of thinking on leadership.
