Without Limits: Breaking the Rules with Postmodernism to Improve Educational Practices in Order to Best Serve Students
Skinner, Desiree A.
Online Submission, National Forum of Educational Administration and Supervision Journal v25 n4 2008
This article is intended to aggressively stimulate provocative ideas about educational practices. In a time when the status quo is easier and more cost effective to maintain in public schools, Dr. Fenwick English attacks these views with a postmodern challenge. It is time for school leaders to consider more than one solution to the problems they face, and find the courage to solve them. The future of our world rests in our children. The time is now to capture our youth and give them the best and most creative education we can and which they deserve.
