Book Overview
This book will embody mostly North American voices on many interrelated topics that have not previously been linked in academic research. Our focus underpins a belief in the power of the EdD to prepare highly competent scholars for civic engagement. Among these future leaders we envision educators who head up not only public school boards, but private foundations, not-for-profit organizations, cultural institutions, and a broad array of community projects.

Outstanding features of this work will be a clear and compelling challenge to end inequities across genetic and economically constructed demographics such as race, gender, class, ability, and ethno-cultural heritage. This book will embody existing and emerging issues such as, but not limited to, candidate recruitment and admission policy; program funding, fees, and student expenses; academic support services; faculty recruitment, compensation, evaluation, and promotion; onsite/online instruction, internship policy, opportunities for graduate student employment, publishing, and conference engagement; student supervision protocols, and dissertation and capstone project parameters. Also of interest would be an exploration of cultural and socio-political contexts, public/private sector relationships, and the kinds of legislation that frame Ed.D. theory, policy and practice.
