The rapid growth of diversity within U.S. schooling and the heightened attention to the lack of equity in student achievement, school completion, and postsecondary attendance has made equity and diversity two of the principle issues in education, educational leadership, and educational leadership research. The Handbook of Research on Educational Leadership for Equity and Diversity is the first research-based handbook that comprehensively addresses the broad diversity in U.S. schools by race, ethnicity, culture, language, gender, disability, sexual identity, and class. The Handbook both highly values the critically important strengths and assets that diversity brings to the United States and its schools, yet at the same time candidly critiques the destructive deficit thinking, biases, and prejudices that undermine school success for many groups of students. Well-known chapter authors explore diversity and related inequities in schools and the achievement problems these issues present to school leaders. Each chapter reviews theoretical and empirical evidence of these inequities and provides research-based recommendations for practice and for future research. Celebrating the broad diversity in U.S. schools, the Handbook of Research on Educational Leadership for Equity and Diversity critiques the inequities connected to that diversity, and provides evidence-based practices to promote student success for all children.

The achievement, schooling, and the ethnic identities of Asian American students are among the core areas in the field of Asian American education, yet there is much that remains to be uncovered, verified, contradicted, and learned through sound research, especially as the Asian American population rapidly increases in size and in the diversification of its characteristics. The chapters in this book deal present cuttingedge work in these three areas and contain innovative perspectives, new qualitative quantitative data, and discussions of the implications of findings for educational policies, practices, and programs. These chapters cover such specific topics as academic achievement gaps between Asian American and White students, contemporary school experiences of Southeast Asians and of undocumented Asian American students, perspectives on teaching immigrant and refugee students, and the development of ethnic identities. This work is authored by wellknown higher education faculty as well as emerging scholars. Overall, this material represents a valuable, timely, and useful contribution to the literature on Asian Americans that will be of interest to faculty, administrators, policymakers, researchers, and students.
