Abstract

The aim of this research is to examine the perceptions of leadership and race by African American current and or former decision makers within Early Childhood Education programs. This phenomenological study will explore African American leaders’ views, attitudes, and beliefs about race pertaining to leadership, children, and themselves. The examination of race within educational leadership is not a new concept; however, with the increased attention now given to early education, it is imperative that issues related to improving learning outcomes for all children are addressed.
