Educational Administration and History Part 1: Debating the Agenda
Gunter, Helen M.; Fitzgerald, Tanya
Journal of Educational Administration and History, v40 n1 p5-21 Apr 2008
In this first editorial paper we scope the terrain on which the JEAH is located and consider the knowledge production process that will shape the journal and, in turn, enable the journal to shape what is known and what is worth knowing. We begin by making a case for productive pluralism where we assert that the JEAH is not directly connected to a particular society or epistemic group, and so the opportunity exists for a range of work that focuses on historical understandings of educational administration to be published. We make the argument that educational administration is a field of study and practice, and that it can draw on historical perspectives and research designs to enable new insights and theoretical explanations to be developed. (Contains 1 figure and 62 footnotes.)
