Summary There is now significant evidence that school and leadership redesign is necessary in order to achieve more socially just educational futures for all students and a productive and professionally rewarding environment for teachers. Redesign requires some fundamental shifts in how schools work; engagement with and through learning communities based on systematic critical inquiry; and inclusive leadership practices that address the complexities of the relationships between diversity, culture, gender and race in schooling. I argue that democratic leadership is most conducive to initiating and sustaining equitable outcomes. The article concludes with consideration of principles that could sustain leadership for social justice.
