In order to promote Indigenous education, Taiwan has successively enacted relevant laws such as the "Basic Law of Indigenous Peoples", "Indigenous Peoples Education Act", "Indigenous Peoples Language Development Act", and "Experimental Education Act" since the lifting of martial law. These laws aim to achieve significant goals of improving academic performance, cultural inheritance, and safeguarding social justice within Indigenous communities.
Social justice leadership by principals in Indigenous areas refers to the leadership approach where school principals emphasize and advocate for social justice values within Indigenous schools. This leadership style particularly pays attention to the needs, culture, traditions, and history of Indigenous students and communities, ensuring they receive equitable educational opportunities and are treated with respect.
The purpose of this research is to construct indicators for social justice leadership among elementary school principals in Taiwan's Indigenous areas. By analyzing and exploring relevant domestic and international research and assessment tools, combined with the Delphi method involving 20 expert consensuses and the Analytic Hierarchy Process, a comprehensive set of indicators for "Elementary School Principals' Social Justice Leadership" that aligns with the current situation is developed.
The research findings reveal that the indicators for elementary school principals' social justice leadership are categorized into six dimensions and twenty-four specific indicators. These dimensions encompass "Possession of Traits of Social Justice Leadership", "Creating an Environment of Educational Equity", "Enhancing the Teaching Environment in Indigenous Homelands", "Fostering Ethnic Identity", "Elevating Academic Achievement for Indigenous Students", and "Enhancing Sociocultural Communication Abilities".
