In whose interests are schools working? What role do educational leaders play in maintaining oppression and inequality? These striking questions and others like them are addressed in the book Educational Leaders in a Multicultural Society: A Critical Perspective. This text provides in-service and pre-service education leaders in the K-12 setting with a critical framework for ensuring equity and equality of education for historically underserved students.

The book addresses multicultural education from a new and unique perspective, linking critical pedagogy and theory, and social justice to transformative leadership. It then uses these concepts to increase understanding of educational philosophy, curriculum and instruction, policy-making, and school-community relations.

The book begins by defining multicultural education and what it means for school leaders. Subsequent chapters address topics such as:

Critical Multicultural Curriculum and Instruction
Critical Race Theory
Social Class and Leadership
Leadership for Social Justice

The final chapter of the book articulates a new vision for multicultural education with the ultimate goal of inspiring school leaders to engage in the radical transformation of their schools.

Educational Leaders in a Multicultural Society can be used in undergraduate courses in the foundations of education and multicultural education. It is also an excellent text for graduate courses in school administration.
