Luis F. Cruz, Ph.D., was the former principal of Baldwin Park High School, located east of Los Angeles, California. He has also been an associate of Dr. Anthony Muhammad’s leadership and consulting company, New Frontier 21, and works with schools and educational groups on ensuring high levels of learning for all students, especially those who live in low-income communities. His Ph.D. in Institutional Leadership and PolicyStudies was earned at the University of California at Riverside. He is currently co-authoring a new book with Anthony Muhammad focusing on school leadership. As a lifelong student of educational leadership theory and practice, Dr. Cruz excelled in building Baldwin Park High School through a program called Courageous Leadership which was funded by a $250,000 grant from the California Academic Partnership Program. The high school’s program received California’s prestigious Golden Bell Award from theCalifornia School Boards Association for significantly closing the achievement gap between the general student population and students learning English as a second language. Dr. Cruz believes that poverty, English as a Second Language and other excuses for why students do not learn must and can be overcome mainly because students and their families are depending on our schools to secure healthy and fulfilling lives for all students.
