CALL FOR ARTICLES
The Journal of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies (JELPS) is seeking papers for its special issue entitled “Educational Leadership and Social Justice.”
In this special issue of JELPS, we ask: 1) what is the relationship between educational leadership and social justice? and 2) what should educational leadership’s commitment be to social justice? Despite calls for social, cultural, and economic equity around the globe, inequity of all kinds persists. Education is seen as a primary means for combatting inequity by individuals, institutions, and governments; yet, there is no formula for how educational systems and actors are to do this.
These are the kinds of questions we hope contributors will address so that, through their contributions, educational practitioners, researchers, and policy-makers will be able to consider, more deeply, who they are in relation to social justice and what actions they and their institutions can take toward achieving it.
The purpose of this special issue is to provide a forum for the sharing of theoretical, conceptual, and empirical research and perspectives regarding social justice along with practical applications and implications for educational leadership.
Specific goals are to:
Each article will be written with the JELPS mission and purpose in mind and will be written to address the application to, and implications for, educational leadership.
Manuscripts will be sent to Dr. Sousan Arafeh, Ph.D., Guest Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr. Yavuz, Founding Executive Editor Journal of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at email@example.com.
