A National Look at Postmodernism's Pros and Cons in Educational Leadership
Townsell, Rhodena
Online Submission, National Forum of Educational Administration and Supervision Journal v25 n4 2007
The purpose of this article is to take a look at the pros and cons of postmodernism. It is imperative for administrators to closely examine educational theories and practices prior to instituting changes. The ability to read and digest challenging material keeps one informed and prepared to lead effectively. This paper will list the pros and cons from Fenwick English's book, "The Postmodern Challenge to the Theory and Practice of Educational Administration" (2003). In this book, English persuades his readers to search for the underlying truth in educational theory and practice. The recurring theme underscores the belief that there is no one truth in the field of education.
