Journal for K-12 Educational Leadership
The Ed.D. in Educational Leadership K-12 program was established to provide a practitioner's degree that would contribute to education research. Our students are in leadership positions all over north Texas–and beyond–in our traditional public schools, public charter schools, and private schools. While their training is to provide skills in servant leadership and make an impact on students in their schools, another goal is to generate research to identify what truly works in our schools.
In this issue, you will read articles written by a selection of graduates of the Doctorate in Educational Leadership K-12. These outstanding school leaders were members of the first two cohorts of students in the DBU Ed.D. K-12 program who graduated in 2015. They conducted research in their home districts on topics that had local interest and local impact.
We are pleased to provide you with the second edition of our doctoral research journal, composed of eleven articles on timely K-12 educational issues in North Texas! The articles are summaries of doctoral dissertations defended at DBU in the past couple of years, and it is our hope the research will provide local schools with answers and perspectives to issues in their own settings.
