Principal Leadership Institute (PLI) Alumni

For me, PLI represented a space in which leadership was discussed in its broadest sense as a manner in which to effect change in education, regardless of ‘position.’ I truly wanted to explore the actualization of social justice as it relates to teachers, students, parents and the community at large.

Leyda W. Garcia

Principal, UCLA Community School

My experience in the UCLA PLI program helped establish the foundation by which I serve as a social justice leader in urban public schools and communities. Unlike other traditional administrative programs, the PLI faculty and staff helped me transform my philosophies of education by sharing tools and insights that would allow me to evolve into a democratic leader whose goals are to establish school reform by creating collaborative opportunities for all stakeholders within the learning community.
