National Agenda: Implementing Postmodern Strategies to Guide Educational Leaders in Creating Schools for Quality Learning in Public Education in America
Collins, Crystal J.; Kritsonis, William Allan
Online Submission
"How do we recapture the magic and myth of education? ... to enable teachers to believe in their importance...so teachers and the public can rediscover the hope schools once held" (Deal and Patterson). The magic must continue in education in order to ensure that schools maintain a strong structure. Postmodernism views the world in such a way that boundaries are rejected and goals are reached in nontraditional ways. Educators often get wrapped up in the everyday functions of the school; we forget to ask teachers, parents, and community for their input. This article utilizes Ways of Knowing through the Realms of Meaning by Dr. William A. Kritsonis (2007) as a framework of constructing recommendations of how educational leaders can take the day to day normal operations of a school setting and implement a postmodernism approach.
