    • Abstract:
      The purpose of this study is to explore the experience of school leaders in high-need contexts, addressing Venezuelan immigrant students seeking asylum and schooling in Brazil. As Venezuelan students experience involuntary diaspora to neighboring countries due to their economic and political downfall, we examine the school leaders' support for these students. Using a transformative leadership lens, this study explores challenges related to organizational culture, language and academic success, as well as teacher training needs to support immigrant families. This research's focus asked: 'In what ways can educational leaders in the Venezuela/Brazil border schools develop an equitable school culture for immigrant students?' Our findings, analyzed under a transformative leadership lens, indicated that challenges faced by the principals in catering to the new Venezuelan students included a lack of advocacy or inclusionary practices, lack of preparedness, as well as a lack of institutional support.
