This conceptual chapter argues that an understanding of racial identity development theory should be a fundamental element of school principals’ preparation and practice. The chapter includes a brief examination of the related research that merges school leadership and racial identity, and a description of three racial identity development theoretical models (Black, White, and Latino); after suggesting questions that still exist regarding racial identity development theory, the author highlights specific ways in which racial identity development can be incorporated in principal preparation programs.
