"This indispensable volume provides a wealth of answers from the country's foremost educators and researchers."
—Dennis Shirley, Professor
Boston College Lynch School of Education, MA

Keys to building socially just schools where achievement soars

Research shows that students’ sense of belonging in their school communities is critically linked to academic achievement. This ninth and final book in The Soul of Educational Leadership series offers practical strategies for promoting socially responsible school cultures that foster greater student engagement and democratic values.

A joint publication with the American Association of School Administrators and the HOPE Foundation, with contributions from renowned educators Bonnie Davis, Linda Skrla, Randall Lindsey, and others, this book explores the key concepts of respect, equity, and character, and examines tough issues such as:

  • Reflecting on our backgrounds and assumptions
  • Modeling socially responsible behavior
  • Teaching students to discern injustice
  • Enacting a zero-tolerance policy toward bullying

Students will shape tomorrow based on what they learn today. This compact guide equips educators to implement democratic practices, act in socially just ways, and impart democratic values to the citizens of the future.
