Early Childhood Education and the Postmodern World.
Elkind, David
Principal, v73 n5 p6-7 May 1994
Postmodernism represents a critique and correction of some exaggerations, distortions, and myths of modernism. Modern social institutions, including schools, are built on the principles of progress, universality, and regularity. Postmodernism emphasizes embeddedness, particularity, and irregularity, reflected in today's kindergarten and the most widely accepted educational reform concepts. Implications for principals are explored. (MLH)
