The Pragmatic Educational Administrator: "Local Theory," Schooling, and Postmodernism Reviled.
Kaminsky, James S.
International Journal of Leadership in Education, v3 n3 p201-24 Jul-Sep 2000
Questions using the "high theory" of postmodern thought to construct a complete, lucid theory of educational administration. Problems with postmodernism's concept of power and its rejection of the expert role make the theory a doubtful candidate for a protagonist administrator role. Pragmatism and local theory are more reliable frameworks. (Contains 87 references.) (MLH)
