Abstract:The study recommends that administrators rethink the traditional, single-reality, cause-effect world view and consider a constructivist world view that supports the existence of multiple realities, multiple paths to understanding, and the possibility of influencing rather than directing change. It outlines a framework for constructing a better understanding of the change process, and it cautions administrators to respect the power of the culture of their schools.
