Applying Postmodernism: Solutions to all our Educational Problems
Ishaq, Kashan; Kritsonis, William Allan
Online Submission
Can postmodern theory help fix our educational system today? This question will be answered in this paper as it highlights significant aspects of postmodernism related to strategic planning in educational leadership. Humans have made major accomplishments over the last century from landing on a moon to the development of nuclear technology, yet the major problems of the educational system remain. Who is to blame? Should we continue to blame our educational leaders or are we going to do anything about it? We often envision looking to the future but we seldom look to the past and learn from the mistakes of yesterday. In order to fix today's educational problems, we have to rationally analyze the problems of the past and introduce the theory of postmodernism into our educational system. Educational leaders must escape out of their fear to bring change and take it as a challenge to fix educational system but it does require a passion for change, meeting the needs of all stakeholders of school.
