Straddling the Divide Between Practice and Scholarship, Tensions of School Leaders Pursuing a Social Justice Leadership Phd
Educational leadership preparation evolves in response to continuous changes in educational practice in the P-20 system. The current paper highlights the experiences and insights of educational leaders who attempt to balance the scholarly work of completing a doctoral degree focused on social justice while they simultaneously address the practical challenges of daily school leadership. The experiences of these educational leaders highlight a central tension present in many educational leadership preparation experiences. Specifically, how do school leaders bridge the gap from scholarship to the practical challenges of school leadership while ensuring schools are responsive to the needs of the communities they serve?.
