In this study, an attempt was made to explore and examine the influence of changing paradigms on educational management. In approaching the chapter, the authors discussed the status-quo by describing the traditional management paradigm. The drivers to change which triggered off the rise of a new paradigm were highlighted and these dully led to a description of the new paradigm whose principles and theories were fully examined. The chapter then engaged a detailed analysis of the various changes in the education management and school administration field consequent to the shift in paradigms. The authors feel that an understanding of the major paradigms in education as well as those critical to educational management and administration is a universal calling. There is no gain saying, therefore, that this chapter will go a long way into improving educational management and administration both at structural level and at the school level.
