ALL WELCOME (Refreshments available)

In multi-ethnic Malaysia, the fostering of racial coexistence, integration, and solidarity becomes an important agenda of education. Although many educational policies and programs for integration have been implemented, the success of the policies for fostering solidarity remains elusive. Among numerous factors that affect the success of the implementation processes, school leadership stands out as the crucial one. The lack of consciousness and gaps in the principals’ knowledge base in leading schools with diverse student population hampers the success rate of the integration policy. Thorough preparation or grooming of a culturally responsive leadership seems to be critical. In order to develop culturally responsive leadership a model depicting a ‘Knowledge base for leading multi-ethnic schools’ is suggested.
