Abstract: The purpose of this research was to explore the leadership practices of a principal who turned around a low-performing school from the lowest state performance level to the highest performance level to determine what guided practices. The school had a 96% high-poverty, 96% high-Hispanic, 63% high- ELL student population with a significant number of immigrant children. The results indicated that the principal’s practices had a clear understanding on his traditional professional knowledge, skills, and experiences.

"Student Voices Contextualize the Realities of Integrated Versus High Poverty, High Minority High Schools" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the UCEA Annual Convention, Westin Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p522948_index.html>

Abstract: Robert, a high achieving senior who set out on his educational journey as an English language learner, described the “resegregation” he experienced in his high school as a microcosm of social reproduction that is ubiquitous in the city:
Yes, the city is very polarized and I feel like maybe that’s an effect that Brown High School is undertaking because it’s such a big school that covers such a wide area of people, so I mean, you have a lot of middle schools feeding into this school. So, I feel like it’s just an effect that it has, like, can it be broken… the issues of race and demographics in my classroom? Yes. Is it easy? No.

Ironically, the school Robert describes is considered an “integrated” high school that prides itself on democratic learning. When outcomes-based research is solely considered one would conclude that such integrated schooling provides optimal educational opportunities for low-income, students of color. However, student voices better contextualize this reality (Cammarota & Romero, 2006; Lawrence-Lightfoot & Davis, 1997) by revealing how low-income students of color experience the structurally disparate opportunities to learn.
In this study, student voices from one integrated and one high-poverty/high-minority (HP/HM) non-integrated high school contextualize the ways in which learning opportunities are actually structured for students. Despite the espoused academic inclusiveness of the integrated school, the findings of this study revealed that both the integrated and HP/HM school similarly stratified access, and both struggle equally to connect low-income students of color to educational support resources. Listening to student voice enables teachers and administrators to critically examine the ways in which their policies and practices can restructure their students’ educational experiences and trajectories in such a way as to be better-received by the students. Such repositioning can also ensure that those same students are in a position to offer the additional critique necessary to preclude other repressive school policies and structures that might otherwise determine their fate… a fate that often includes not completing high school.

Abstract: Findings from prior research on the relationship between parenting and adolescent victimization are mixed; several studies report protective effects of attachment and warmth, while the effects of monitoring and supervision differ considerably across studies. It is unclear if the impact of parenting on victimization varies depending on neighborhood conditions. Further, it is important to consider how these relationships operate among those who are particularly vulnerable to victimization, that is, youth with a history of delinquent behavior. Using the first two waves of the Pathways to Desistance data, this study examines the main and interactive effects of parenting variables and neighborhood conditions on victimization among a sample of serious adolescent offenders.
