The books in this series explore both leadership and policy for learning, equity, diversity, social justice, and anti-oppressive education in the context of decision-making in neoliberal times. Bringing together major theorists from the social and political sciences to critical studies of educational leadership and policy, the volumes in this series offer alternatives to the neoliberal dominant discourse and practices. How do policy makers and educational leaders experience decision making? What new tensions and challenges are they facing? What are the implications of decision-making processes and ideologies for social diversity, democracy, and equity? This series advances theoretical and empirical discussions on educational leadership and policy by incorporating different perspectives and paradigms that encourage educators to act meaningfully, innovatively, and democratically in diverse settings.
