December 2011: Immigration and the Challenge of Education: A Social Drama Analysis in South Central Los Angeles

Dr Nathalia Jaramillo

Part ethnography and part testimony, this book analyzes a school setting and community from the standpoint of a group of immigrant mothers (las madres) in South Central Los Angeles who were concerned about the education of their children and the violence in their communities. Written in both the first and third person, in Spanish and English, the text brings together the women's dialogue and observations of the world around them as they embarked on an oftentimes conflicting process of putting into action their developing political consciousness. The social drama of the school and community is revealed through their change and advocacy. Published by Palgrave Macmillan.

October 2011: Applied Critical Leadership in Education

Co-authored by Dr Lorri Santamaria

Educational leaders are seeing the increasing need for practical transformative models and theories to address academic, cultural, and socio-economic gaps separating learners at all levels of the educational system. Applied Critical Leadership in Education explores a leadership model arising from critical theory and critical pedagogy traditions that transforms status quo educational practices. Providing a range of diverse voices of practicing leaders from prekindergarten through higher education, explicit ties to theory and practice are drawn, making leadership for social justice accessible, feasible, and more practical for aspiring and practicing leaders alike.

Applied Critical Leadership in Education provides an innovative way for aspiring and practicing educational leaders to think about and apply leadership practice suited for the educational challenges of today that are necessary for change.
