Despite the dramatic shift in demographics occurring within public schools, there is still a dismal amount of research connecting issues of diversity and race with the curricula guiding educational leadership preparation programs. In the field of leadership preparation, little information has been offered as to how professors facilitate social justice oriented conversations within their classrooms, particularly conversations focused specifically on race-related issues. In this article, we consider concepts we believe should be included in leadership preparation programs seeking to develop leaders for diverse settings. We conclude the article by discussing suggestions that could help contribute to the development of a transformative curriculum for leadership preparation programs.
