  • Social Justice and Social Justice Leadership in Higher Education
           Institutions: The Perception of Women and Persons with Disabilities

    • Abstract: This qualitative research aimed at exploring prevailing scenarios related to social justice and social justice leadership as perceived by women and individuals with disabilities. To conduct the study, interpretive phenomenological research method was employed. In doing so, ten participants, including women and people with disabilities were selected using purposive sampling technique. Data were also collected via semi-structured interviews and focus-group discussions. Thus, the research result indicated that participants were not so strange for the concepts related to social justice and social justice leadership albeit their understanding differed. Moreover, participants pointed out that community perception towards women and persons with disabilities are not so fair and progressive, and tailored policies and strategies are not made available and being implemented in the study context. It was also indicated that different forms of sexual harassments, classroom buildings, toilets, shower rooms, dining rooms and distances between classrooms and dormitories were enumerated as major inconveniences and reflection of injustices encountering women and people with disabilities in the study context. On top of this, unfair and unjust practices in areas of staff recruitment and promotion in the study context were major challenges identified in this research.

  • Measuring and Modelling the Adaptive Capacity of Universities: A Composite
           Indicators Methodology

    • Abstract: Initiating, implementing, and sustaining reforms are the most daunting and challenging aspects of change in higher education institutions. This research argues that to survive and thrive in a changing environment, adaptive capacity is fundamental. Thus, this study aims to serve two purposes. While the leading purpose was measuring the adaptive capacity of universities using a conceptual model developed based on literature review, introducing the critical components that determine adaptive capacity was secondary. Therefore, guided by a pragmatic approach this study has tried to maintain both subjective reflections and objective data during data collection and analysis. Accordingly, to attain the purpose of the study mixed research design particularly, a sequential explanatory approach was used. To gather relevant data from the target population, the questionnaire was distributed and 594 completed and useful questionnaires were returned from 133 leaders at different position, 268 academic staffs and 193 support staffs, which was a 62.06% response rate. Besides, 15 interviews and documents were reviewed. Finally, among the composite indicators approach, structural equation modeling (SEM) mainly principal least square path modeling (PLS-PM) was used to measure and analyze adaptive capacity using XLSTAT software. As a result, the adaptive capacity of universities was found unsatisfactory i.e. lower than moderate. This indicates universities might not fully implement the change ideas they wish to introduce into their system. Consequently, the identified gaps and challenges in the studied universities strengthen the argument for the need to assess universities adaptive capacity using a model and make appropriate intervention before struggling to introduce any change initiative without a fertile ground.

  • Capacity Development and Policies to Reduce Poverty in Latin America

    • Abstract: This article aims to analyze some of the government experiences to promote the management capacities of public officials in poverty reduction policies – in particular, the Conditional Cash Transfer Programs (CCTP) of four countries: Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and the Dominican Republic. The methodology includes a bibliographic review and the analysis of government documents such as plans and reports on capacity development for the CCTPs’ officials, and interviews with groups with the managers responsible for the training in each country, performed via Skype or telephone. Based in the bibliography review, the main issues of the capacity development strategy were included in a question guide on the management, objectives, design, contents, implementation, infrastructure, budget and evaluation and of the training programs in each country. Results were analyzed using the content analysis technique, according to the sets of concepts and questions asked in the interviews, and comparing the results between countries. Results show that capacity development in CCTPs varies among countries, according to the level of centralization, available infrastructure and external collaborators. Governments have professionalized the hiring process and the strategy of capacity building of their officials, who have diversified the skills, contents, and the participation of external institutions, partners and collaborators in this process, even focusing in a more culturally sensitive formation, for example, in indigenous languages and participation, as in the Mexican and Colombian cases. However, improvements are necessary in evaluating the results of the training implemented, in order to plan and implement programs based on evidence.

  • The Study of Competencies of Secondary School Principals in 21st Century

    • Abstract: This study aims to develop the competency indicators of secondary school principals in the 21st century and to examine the consistency of competency indicators structure model of secondary school principals in 21st century with empirical data. There are two stages in the process of research. Step 1 is conducting theoretical structure model of secondary school principals in the 21st century by documentary synthesis, gathering draft models of the theoretical indicators structure and the in-depth interview with nine experts were used to formulate a theoretical model. The instrument was the interview questionnaire titled, “the competency indicators of secondary school principals in 21st century”. Data is analyzed by applying interview results for data organizing, data displaying and interpretation, conclusion, and the summary of theoretical indicator structure model. Step 2 is the checking the consistency of structure model of competency indicators of the secondary school principals in 21st century. The population were 933 secondary school principals under the Office of Secondary Educational Service Area 19 – 33 in academic year 2017, and 500 of them were the samples selecting by Two-Stage Random Sampling. The instrument were created by using indicators and components obtained from Step 1 to create the 5 – rating scale questionnaire. Reliability value was .996 and data analysis use Computer Software. The study findings were as follows: The competencies of secondary school principals in 21st century consisted of 6 core competencies and 23 sub-components including: 1) Modern management core components consists of 3 sub-components; Strategic change management, Empowerment of assigning decision responsibility, and Using resources efficiency, 2) Team work core components consists of 5 sub-components; Participative management, Cooperation, Accompany with assigning strategic and goal setting, Creating mutual trust and Communication, 3) Individual and personnel development core components consists of 3 sub- components; Emotional management, Self and personnel understanding, and Ethics and virtue, 4) Administrative Innovation for development core components consists of 4 sub- components; Creating innovation management, Using technology for management, Making organization of learning, and Knowledge management, 5) Thinking development core components consists of 4 sub-components; Creative thinking, Critical thinking, Analytical thinking and Systems thinking, 6) Academic leadership core competency consists of 4 sub-components; School Curriculum development, Learning process development, Supervision in school ,and Student development and then the adjusted model is good consistent with empirical data, considering from the chi-square test which is statistically significant at 176.06, with no statistical significance, df = 153. Chi-Square is 0.15 GFI, 0.97 AGFI is 0.95 CFI = 1.00 SRMR is 0.02, RMSEA is 0.02, and CN is 552.38. It shows that the Equation of Equation Consistent with empirical data.
