Green College of Education Prairie View A&M University Principal Intern Houston A+ Challenge Houston Independent School District William Allan Kritsonis, PhD Professor & Faculty Mentor PhD Program in Educational Leadership Prairie View A&M University Member of the Texas A&M University System Visiting Lecturer (2005) Oxford Round Table University of Oxford, Oxford England Distinguished Alumnus (2004) Central Washington University College of Education and Professional Studies ABSTRACT Schools have the liberty to thrive as a result of strategic planning emphasizing postmodern thinking. When educators put a plan in motion that is beneficial for their unique organization and acquire a state of mind which allows them to see education differently and work innovatively within an educational setting, students are the primary beneficiaries. Educators and students do not benefit from a one size fits all approach. Astute educators understand the importance of multiple truths which instantaneously open educators to a myriad of success avenues. Educators accept differences within the organization, instructional strategies, and diverse student needs. Educators must view educational truths from several perspectives in search of the best practices for students. 78
