There are so many books about education and leadership. Culturally Responsive Leadership requires us to be constant learners. Where do you start to get a foundation and learn shortcuts to success?
I myself have a bookshelf filled with tons of “must read” texts. My nightstand and the backseat of my car are filled with more. Summer break, a long weekend, and vacations are great times for a little light or in this case heavy reading. It’s my favorite way to push my thinking and feel like a professional.
But what do Culturally Responsive Leaders read and where do you start?
