Rewriting Narratives and Leadership Vision through a Postmodern Imagination: A Spiritual Imperative to Leading African American Schools
Dantley, Michael E.
Journal of School Leadership, v15 n6 p673-685 Nov 2005
This article asks educational leaders to imagine schools from a post-modern perspective in order to address the issues specifically germane to black children in public schools. In fact, this article challenges current as well as prospective school leaders to adopt a radical approach to perceiving schools so that the inequities and undemocratic practices in these institutions may be uncovered and dealt with. All of this is initiated through a spirit of resistance and radical reconstruction aimed at creating schools that are more effective in facilitating crucial education for African American and impoverished students.
