Abstract

The scholar-practitioner leader operates reflexively in the boundaries between theory and practice, striving to create exemplars of democracy and social justice within schools while simultaneously meeting modern accountability demands. This article outlines a theoretical underpinning for scholar- practitioner leadership and provides means of operationalizing it in context.

Keywords: Scholar-practitioner leadership, accountability, democracy and social justice
