The purpose of this session is to bring together a diverse group of scholars who study in the “margins of leadership” (youth voice, parent engagement, community organizing) to co-create a scholarship and action agenda to promote and examine youth, parent, and community leadership within the field. This session engages participants in dialogue and reflection around how we define leadership and the implications for expanding the educational leadership paradigm within school and district leadership preparation programs.
