She teaches and researches on international educational leadership policies, practices and paradoxes. Since 2011, Cunningham has been annually teaching a Masters of Educational Leadership course in China for school principals and party secretaries. She has witnessed the rapid pace of change in China's education sector and is currently researching China's Rise with a special focus on the challenges and aspiration of Chinese women and girls. She is the author of the book Corrupted principles and the challenges of critically reflective leadership (Peter Lang, 2011) which explores South American elite education and she has been published in multiple Australian and international academic journals every year since then. Her most recent articles showcase shared studies with impressive early career colleagues including one about humanities curriculum change in WA and another, in the same state of Australia, a research project about new principals becoming socialised into their new roles.
