Because schools have historically failed to educate satisfactorily students of color, dynamic leadership is required to focus on pedagogy (teaching & learning), thoroughly knowing student population served, expanding beyond learning to serve community needs and building a support network and partnerships. In short, innovative leadership that will design and bring about new educational curricula and organization will be proposed. New paradigms from educational leaders are necessary.
