Anthony, Taiwanna D.; Kritsonis, William Allan
Online Submission, Lamar University Electronic Journal of Student Research Spr 2006
Since the beginning of public education educational practices have been vitally important. Leaders need to become aware of the necessity for the most effective possible educational system if they are to meet the demands of life in a highly precarious and rapidly changing world. According to Phenix (1986) humankind must see how important knowledge is in meeting these demands. Philosophers in education have enlightened the field with their expertise and knowledge in the area of their chosen discipline. Phenix (1986) states, that in the past decade educators have shown renewed appreciation for the place of the organized disciplines of knowledge in education. Philosophical reasoning in education is not new. Educational Philosophy is an ongoing and continuous process. Educators possess different philosophical views that cartels to their specific persona. Through pedagogical styles, each person is adaptive in how they learn, lead, guide, and empower relative to guiding and working with others.
