Journal of International Education and Leadership (JIEL) is a peer-reviewed electronic journal providing a forum for educators, education leaders, scholars, students, and policy makers to address the current topics in the field of education and leadership from a global perspective. The Journal welcomes articles on analysis of educational and leadership discourses, policy and practice across disciplines, and their implication for teaching, learning, and policy making and the topics of education and leadership and a variety of disciplines to include sociology, anthropology, economics, and a broader scope of cultural studies as they relate to education and leadership. Articles should focus on studies and systematic analyses that employ qualitative, quantitative, plural (mixed-methods), and theoretical methodologies from an international scope.  Both pedagogical and andragogical perspectives in teaching and learning are welcome.
