Abstract

Schools are becoming more racially and culturally diverse. Due to changing demographics, how do we know if leaders and teachers are adapting to the diverse needs of students? This research highlights students’ voices and the powerful role they play in measuring teachers’ and leaders’ practices for school inclusion. Using an exploratory student survey, students were surveyed regarding their perspectives on their principals’ and teachers’ abilities to lead a school with changing demographics.
