By the Principal Leadership Institute (PLI) at Berkeley
We hope our contribution to this issue raises up the critical role of school leaders, student voice, and the need for more critical conversations between practitioners and researchers about issues of equity in schools.
The mission of the Principal Leadership Institute (PLI) at Berkeley is to prepare, induct, and support a diverse community of equity focused school leaders who will improve education for vulnerable and historically underserved students in California’s public schools in support of social justice. Since its founding in 2000, PLI has prepared 548 educational leaders through its Master’s program. Through its induction program, the Leadership Support Program (LSP), it has supported over 150 early career leaders. Through its outreach program, it has provided extensive professional development to educators in the Bay Area and internationally.
