Transforming School and Society: Examining the Theoretical Foundations of Scholar-Practitioner Leadership
Hampton, Keri
Scholar-Practitioner Quarterly, v4 n2 p185-193 Spr 2010
The purpose of this paper is to examine, using the tenets of cultural theory, critical theory, constructivist theory, and transformational theory as a lens, selected theoretical foundations of the scholar-practitioner. These foundations form the framework for understanding the nature of the scholar-practitioner construct and provide insight into the notion that transformational change cannot be effectively accomplished through the work of the scholar or the work of the practitioner in isolation. True change occurs when scholarship informs practice and practice influences scholarship through the work of the scholar-practitioner. The author argues that the scholar-practitioner leader focuses on transformational change in an effort to create a democratic school and society that exemplify values of social justice, diversity, equity, and works to promote equality.
