The research grant is for a 30-month study entitled "“Social Justice Leadership for Learning”: A New Conceptualization of School Leadership”.

This study aims to:

ascertain specific leadership for learning practices enriched by the social justice perspective in three participating jurisdictions (Hong Kong, China; Israel; and Texas, USA);
determine the role of contextual factors in the formation and implementation of such practices; and
develop and validate a social justice leadership for learning scale (SOLE-S) for each jurisdiction, as well as a common scale for future comparative studies.
