  Course Description
Complex issues shape and are shaped by K-12 leadership practice such as student access to disability services, language and cultural barriers, and trauma-induced learning problems, among others. Such issues underscore the importance of increasing educational leader knowledge about inclusive practice. Students in this course will critically examine educational leadership strategies, programming, and relevant policies concerned with fostering inclusivity within school building and district environments. As such this course operates from the premise that students and educational staff possess unique talents and struggles, as well as have a continuum of physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs. This course also focuses on what it means to ?lead beyond inclusion,? by examining what educational researchers who work across the K-12 leadership-policy spectrum have to say about working with students who occupy different developmental and identity statuses, as well as may have experienced trauma. In doing so, course discussions will push students to be cognizant of the kind of discourse used in research and practice to discuss these issues (e.g., special education v. students with disabilities; at-risk v. underserved). Course activities and written assignments are designed to provide students with opportunities to develop critical, meaningful, and relevant sense-making that helps leaders to improve learning for all learners. As reflexivity is integral to working with students from different backgrounds, coursework also will direct students to explore how their positionality matters to fostering equitable, inclusive, and safe school milieus.
