Abstract

School districts are faced with challenges resulting from the changing demo- graphics of the student population. Consequently, school districts are creat- ing positive, multicultural learning environments. School districts intent on establishing multicultural learning environments should consider the contri- butions people of color, specifically women of color can make in leading the endeavor. This study highlights the insights and experiences of three women of color school leaders. Their stories demonstrate how leadership from women of color contributes to the development of positive, multicultural learning environments. Their stories provide insight for school districts as they seek effective leadership for their schools and for administration preparation programs as they prepare aspiring school leaders.
