Conclusion: Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow: A Post-Postmodern Purview

  • Christopher Hodgkinson
Part of the Studies in Educational Leadership book series (SIEL, volume 1)


This chapter critically surveys the cultural and educational context of the period 1960 – 2020 and seeks to analyze the implications for educational leadership. Sources range from early contributions of Donald Willower to the latest prognostications of experts in Cambridge and the USA. Both general and special conclusions are drawn and a new test, the A3M3, is introduced as part of the presentation.
