Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Education provides a much-needed blueprint for how school leaders can leverage the power of collaborative learning to create more culturally and linguistically responsive schools.

Praise

This highly engaging book offers a timely and insightful look into the positive transformations that result from building coalitions and networks across and within schools to enact culturally and linguistically responsive education for all students. Demographic trends call for educational leaders to not only value and celebrate the diversity of students and their families, but to go further by breaking from monolingual and monocultural mind-sets. Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Education expertly shows us how this is done. — Sonia W. Soltero, professor and chair, Department of Leadership, Language, and Curriculum, College of Education, DePaul University

About the Editors

Martin Scanlan is an associate professor in educational leadership at the Lynch School of Education and Human Development at Boston College. Before becoming a faculty member in higher education, Scanlan spent a decade working in teaching and administration in urban elementary and middle schools in Washington, DC, Berkeley, California, and Madison, Wisconsin. He continues to work closely with building and district-level administrators to bridge research and practice. Scanlan’s research explores how to strengthen the communities of practice in schools to promote inclusion of students across multiple dimensions of diversity. His scholarship has focused primarily on reform in special education service delivery, bilingual education, and school-community collaboration. His work can help leaders conceptualize how to structure service delivery, promote professional learning, and attain resources. He is committed to design-based research in which practitioners play a lead role in articulating the problems of practice that they seek to address, and creating collaborative research projects tackling these problems.
