Call for Chapters

The current call for chapters for the forthcoming Information Age Publishing (IAP) book titled Equity and Access: An Analysis of Educational Leadership Preparation, Policy, and Practice, edited by Drs. Fowler, Vasquez Heilig, Jouganatos, and Johnson, focuses on educational leadership, practice, and policy through an equity and access lens. This book will be significant in that it will offer an in-depth analysis of educational leadership and educational policy in the United States and around the globe. Through the aforementioned equity and access lens, the book will focus on how leadership preparation and practices as well as policy and procedures have affected and continues to affect all stakeholders including school leaders, staff, students, parents, community members, and business owners. Through this lens, the aim of the book is to examine both the positive and negative implications (nationally & internationally) of: (1) trends in educational leadership preparation; (2) trends in educational leadership practices; (3) educational policy; and (4) the procedures and the intended/unintended consequences associated with such educational leadership policies.

Tentative Book Sections include:

Section I: Educational Leadership Preparation: An Analysis of Current and Past Trends in Educational Leadership Preparation
Section II: Educational Leadership Policy and Procedures: A Historical Analysis
Section III: Educational Leadership Practice: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
