Inhoud: A review of the current state of education for poor African-American and Mexican-American students reveals that these students perform below middle- and upper-class Euro-American students on all standard measures of achievement. The authors of this article believe that schools leaders can begin to close this gap by emulating leaders who have successfully transformed the cultures of poor Mexican-American and African-American schools, and, more specifically, by understanding the values and beliefs that guide these leaders' actions. This qualitative study examines the beliefs and values of educators in two such schools, one in Texas and one in Alabama. Four common beliefs emerged from the data: challenging the myth, cou(rage), responsible community, and knowing students. The authors argue that these beliefs are not found in traditional educational leadership discourse, do closely resemble values embraced by feminist scholars, and have strong implications for leadership preparations programmes. In this world-weary period of pervasive cynicisms, nihilisms, terrorisms, and possible extermination, there is a longing for norms and values that can make a difference, a yearning for principled resistance and struggle that can change our desperate flight.
