A National Perspective: Utilizing the Postmodern Theoretical Paradigm to Close the Achievement Gap and Increase Student Success in Public Education America
Butcher, Jennifer; Kritsonis, William Allan
Online Submission, National Forum of Educational Administration and Supervision Journal v26 n4 2008
The belief that there is one right way or method of inquiry to pursue truth as it is constructed has been rejected by postmodernism. Postmodernism challenges and opens up the central idea that only one set of limits are possible in supporting professional practice. Postmodernism designs a way to look at concepts through the context of meaning. The postmodern paradigm considers human endeavors to be connected with the natural world rather separate from nature. The postmodern theoretical paradigm is about investigating and accepting new practices in solving old problems. In order for change to occur there must be a shift in our thinking. Accepting and applying new views will lead the way for educators to close the academic gap and promote student success.
