Mette launches podcast about cases in educational leadership

Associate professor of educational leadership Ian Mette is co-host of a new podcast from the Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership. “JCEL Jabber” is co-hosted by Mette and JCEL editor Curtis Brewer, an associate professor of educational leadership at the University of Texas at San Antonio, and highlights important case studies recently published in the journal and how they are applicable to educators in the field. The first episode features a discussion about the case “Challenging Whiteness at Claremont High School” by Terri Nicol Watson, associate professor of educational leadership at City College of New York, and Angel Miles Nash, an assistant professor of leadership development at Chapman University. The authors and scholarly-practitioner Teresa Lance, an assistant superintendent of equity and innovation at a school district in Illinois, join the show to talk about how school leaders must recognize the ways in which whiteness is reinforced by school policies and often enacted by school leaders of all backgrounds. Future episodes of “JCEL Jabber” will appear quarterly, and can be heard on various podcast apps or at the show’s online feed.
