  • “We don't talk about undocumented status…We talk about helping
           children”: How School Leaders Shape School Climate for Undocumented
           Immigrants

    • Authors: Emily Crawford
      Pages: 116 - 147
      Abstract: The racial/ethnic tensions, policies, and practices in society can be mirrored in spaces and institutions like schools. In schools, sociopolitical discourses can be reproduced and protected in institutional policies. One way K-12[i] leaders can initiate change and limit marginalization is by creating a school environment that accepts and integrates students regardless of legal status.. This study investigate how K-12 school leaders influence the school climate to enhance receptiveness for undocumented students, and the children of undocumented immigrants. Study findings come from a CTA of nine school leaders in K-12 schools in two urban districts in Texas along the U.S.-Mexico border. Findings demonstrate that leaders acted to increase student performance, sense of belonging at school, and to enhance student integration and participation in school as paths to a welcoming school climate. Their talk revealed they used practices and strategies to reduce barriers between home and schooling cultures.

  • LEADERSHIP IN SOCIAL MOVEMENTS: THE CASE OF OJO CON TU OJO

    • Authors: Rosa Valls, Adriana Aubert Simón, Lidia Puigvert Mallart, Ainhoa Flecha Fernandez de Sanmamed
      Pages: 148 - 177
      Abstract: Leadership has been a topic of much interest in the analysis of social movements. Drawing from qualitative fieldwork, this article analyzes the leadership that was developed by Ester Quintana, who was the last victim to be injured by a rubber bullet during a demonstration in Barcelona (Spain). Together with her friends and other people, Quintana created the Ojo con tu ojo movement (Watch out for your eye). Specifically, the article explores the relevance of Quintana’s prior experiences in participatory and dialogic movements and identifies the way that she transferred this knowledge to Ojo con tu ojo as the key to the success of the movement. In only 12 months, Ojo con tu ojo achieved something that other similar social movements in Spain had not achieved in the past: a legislation change that bans the use of rubber bullets by the police.

  • THE TASKS OF REVIEWING AND FINDING THE RIGHT ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE THEORY

    • Authors: Abayomi Oluwatosin Alase
      Pages: 198 - 215
      Abstract: Organizational change is probably the singular most important undertaken that many organizations wish they could do to affect their productivities/profitability performances.  This review paper will highlight some of the well-known theories and approaches to organizational change.  In the late 1990s and early 2000s, America had one of the best economies in decades and many of her citizens were able to benefit from it both financially and educationally; the economy (and educational aspirations) grew expeditiously and lifted millions of Americans out of poverty.  These economical and educational turnarounds were achieved due in part to innovative and transformational leaders who understand that in order for businesses to grow, organizational change has to be an integral part of the process.  However, the issue now is that there seems to be too many complex and confusing change theories that profess to have the remedies for ‘fixing’ the organizational problems.  Ideally, however, this review paper will try to highlight the essentials of the selected organizational change and leadership theories and simplify them by making them accessible and understandable.  Additionally, this review will try to ease some of the confusions of the theories and potentially help guide the change agents to the appropriate organizational change theories.
