    • Leadership for 21st Century Schools Journal Themes: Theme: Researching Proven Practices, Processes and Procedures for Effective School Leadership Strand I:Essential Dispositions for Effective School Leadership Strand II: Instructional Models that Work in Underperforming Schools Strand III: Leadership Core Competencies for 21st Century School Strand IV: Standards, Competencies and Accountability Measures Overview Focus: Having served at every level of elementary and secondary education I came to realize that if urban education was going to change in a manner that meets the needs of all students, the change would have to occur in the office of the principal. Therefore, over the past two (2) decades I have focused my research on leadership of the principal. That research lead to the design and implementation of an innovative principal preparation program model based on a theory that I referenced as the Four Dimensions of Principal Leadership: A Framework for Leading 21st Century Schools.Myresearch at the University of Memphis on school leadership revealed that leadership for today’s schools contains for dimensions: 1. Understanding self and others embodies the beliefs, values, and behavior of the leader which culminates in the leader’s disposition. What a leader need to know, be able to do and how the leader should behave. For this dimension the research focused on:  Dispositions-behavior that leads to leadership effectiveness  Competencies-areas in which school leaders need to be competent  Attitude-attitude that school leaders need to have about all children 2. Understanding the complexity of organizational life embodies the culture, climate, structure of the school organization and the interaction of people in the school organization. For this dimension the research has focused on:  Characteristics of Nurturing Schools  Pick experiences for all students
    • 3. Building bridges through relationships embodies relationships between and among people inside and outside of the schoolhouse.  Building positive relationships  Participatory Governance and Change 4. Engaging in leadership best practices embodies the use of proven practices that lead to enhanced activities for all students. For this dimension the research focused on:  Practices, processes, and procedures for use in transforming underperforming schools  Models for instructional Improvement Collectively the dimensions of the theory offers a change mode for use in transforming underperforming high poverty schools into high performing schools. In conjunction with that theory we researched the competencies that principal should master, the disposition they should exhibit and the type of school climate they should develop. This work has been wrapped around standards, competencies and accountability measures which established a framework for leading twenty-first century schools. I will include six articles that summarize this work. The articles are: Articles A Response to the Call for Effective Leadership in Today’s Schools: Three Essentials, Preparation, Competencies, and Dispositions Transforming High Poverty Underperforming Schools: Practices, Processes, and Procedures Practices Used by National Award Winning Principals to Improve Student Achievement in High Poverty Schools Exploring the Effects of 13 Core Competencies on Leader Behavior and its Relationship to Teacher Job Satisfaction: An Exploration of Leadership Dispositions Preferred by Effective School Leaders
    • An Investigation of the Attitudes of School Leaders Toward the Inclusion of Students with Disabilities in the General Education Setting In addition to these six articles, I will include seven articles that align with one of the four themes. These seven articles have been submitted by professors in various universities. I trust that this information will be of assistance to you as you develop the introduction.
