The Sixth "P"--Politics
Fink, Dean
Journal of Invitational Theory and Practice, v19 p45-51 2013
Invitational theory presents the concept of invitations as related to five factors: people, places, policies, programs, and processes (Purkey & Schmidt, 1990). In this article, the author proposes the addition of a sixth "P," politics. The assumption is that without addressing the political aspect of schools and school systems, success of the invitational model with the other five dimensions is undermined or negated at best. Fifteen guidelines for thinking politically and incorporating the sixth "P" into the invitational process are presented.
