Enact culturally responsive school leadership with our free downloadable tools series.

Ideas can only get us so far if we don't know how to translate them into action. We release a free downloadable tool every month to members of our CRSL community. Each of the tools we release are linked to our core text, Culturally Responsive School Leadership (Khalifa, 2018). We invite you to use these tools alongside the book to develop your practices and engage your educational colleagues in this work.

"I argue that it is not enough to want equity or to have courageous conversations; school leaders must enact school structures that will promote and embrace unique cultural knowledge that is consistent with the lives of children."
