Observing Educational Administrators: Paradoxical Reflections.
Beavis, Allan K.
Journal of Educational Administration, v37 n1 p8-22 1999
Paradox arising from the coincidence of observing and being observed has epistemological implications. Traditional science attempted to eschew the observer and avoid self-reference; modern physics finds this problematic. Educational administration theories must reflect the self-reference of an educational social system's identity and must practice what they describe. (38 references) (MLH)
