Dr. Steve Sider's book "Leadership for Inclusive Schools" wins Exceptionality Education International Book Award for 2022

Dr. Steve Sider's book "Leadership for Inclusive Schools" co-authored with Dr. Kimberly Maich won the Canadian Association for Educational Psychology Exceptionality Education International Book of the Year Award for 2022.

Leadership for Inclusive Schools, published by Rowman & Littlefield, supports the professional learning of school principals, and those who aspire to be such, in development of their skills and knowledge around fostering inclusive schools for students with special education needs. The book includes 27 case stories that are based on research with school principals. Each case includes expert commentaries and resources to support principals and emerging leaders as they consider how to effectively support students with special education needs in inclusive schools. Its premise is based on the recognition that there are increasing numbers of students with disabilities and special education needs in neighbourhood schools. Principals need to develop new competencies to navigate the challenges, and benefits, of including students with special education needs into inclusive classroom settings. The book provides opportunities to build leadership competencies by considering a diversity of cases related to inclusive leadership. 

The prize package for this peer-reviewed award includes a certificate, $100 in cash, a year's subscription to Exceptionality Education International (EEI), as well as printing the winner's name with a summary of the winning book. The award is given annually by EEI, and books are evaluated by a panel of reviewers from around the world. The award will be presented at the annual conference of the Canadian Society for the Study of Education on May 30, 2023
