Each case study in this book stands alone. The leaders portrayed in these narratives, and the authors who collaborated with them in the re-storying of their lived experience, bring unique worldviews and particular theoretical lenses to bear. le is appropriate chat readers should do the same. In this concluding chapter we seek not to prescribe meaning nor constrain interpretation but to highlight three emerging themes: complexity, agency, and action. Rather than summarise each case we select examples that evoke and illustrate the points we wish co make. We consider the implications of complexity, agency, and action for practitioners, policy makers, and the education profession (pre- and in-service). Finally, we conclude with a series of provocations that we hope will ignite passionate debate, professional commitment, and the political will necessary co reach national consensus over what we mean by social justice and how we best go about achieving this.
