CAPEA is an organization of professors from private and public colleges or universities dedicated to the education of school leaders. 

We seek to vitalize the discourse necessary for blending theory and practice in ways consistent with current research and future projections. We also seek to strengthen networks with other professional and public entities for the continued improvement of education in California.

CAPEA invites proposals from organization members who are addressing anti-racist and transformative leadership. We seek proposals that consider:

  • The movement for Black Lives and historical perspectives of people of color in the US

  • Practices of abolitionist teaching and learning 

  • The history of colonization in the US and its contribution to persistent inequities in achievement and other outcomes for students of color

  • Evidence of leadership preparation in social justice frameworks

  • Development of humanizing pedagogies that support leaders’ development of critical consciousness and commitment to living into and keeping social justice at the center rather than the periphery of their leadership.
