Xiaoyao Yue, Yong Jun Feng

Abstract


Culture is a collective matter in the mind that is different from other groups. Under economic globalization, the boundaries between countries are not clear. The globalization of education has a major impact on teaching. School culture is affected by globalization, and school leaders must treat it with caution. The principal has high expectations for everyone and supports students with different cultural backgrounds. This research aims to explore cultural leadership in the sustainable development of schools. Through content analysis, the researchers synthesized relevant literature and research results and found that school leaders need to understand the importance of multiculturalism and diversity before they can understand the school culture that still reflects group values. Cultural leadership is an important means to maintain school development. It plays the role of a saint in the field of education and can help them maintain school reform. The cultural leadership strategies contain: Train teachers how to teach diverse students, Dealing with cultural diversity issues, Integrating curricula involves cross-cultural issues, Help teacher become cultural leaders, Support the learning community and Set the goals for building a diverse community.

文化是思维中与其他群体不同的集体意识。在经济全球化下,国家之间的界限不明确。教育的全球化对教学产生重大影响。学校文化受到全球化的影响,学校领导者必须谨慎对待它。校长对每个人都有很高的期望,并支持具有不同文化背景的学生。这项研究旨在探索学校可持续发展中的文化领导力。通过内容分析,研究人员整合了相关文献和研究结果,发现学校领导者需要先了解多元文化多样性的重要性,然后才能理解反映群体价值观的学校文化。文化领导力是保持学校发展的重要手段。它在教育领域中扮演着圣人的角色,可以帮助校长们维持学校改革。文化领导力策略包括:培训教师如何教多样化的学生,处理文化多样性问题,整合课程涉及的跨文化问题,帮助教师成为文化领导者,支持学习社区和设定建立多元化社区的目标。
