Affirmative Strategies for Principals and Teachers



February 1997 | 152 pages | Corwin
Where do you look for information on uniting staff and students to combat discrimination? How can you put "what everyone knows is right" into practice? This new book offers the guidance you need to lead your school to true equality. Learn how discrimination can permeate your school and your classroom without overt signs. Find out how to recognize the subtle but potentially damaging things that students and educators say and do. Begin the process by involving teachers, students, and community members. Use your leadership skills to * Encourage teachers to participate in area social services to get to know students and their families * Empower students through participatory decision making * Build partnerships between the school and community with community redevelopment * Involve community leaders in the fight against discrimination Miron combines research with experience and shows how you can develop your own leadership process to resist and eliminate the covert discrimination in your school. Confront the reality of discrimination by creating an atmosphere where bigotry is actively discouraged. A flourishing campus diversity can make positive contributions to the academic and personal lives of students, staff, and the surrounding community. Remake your school into a place where all individuals are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.
