For graduate level Law and Ethics courses in Educational Leadership Programs

A user-friendly, coherent look at the study of legal issues in a real-world, problem-based approach that emphasizes the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed for successful PK-12 leadership

In this real world, problem-based approach to law and ethics in educational leadership, the author emphasizes the knowledge, skills, and dispositions today’s educators need to be successful leaders. In a user-friendly, coherent approach to the study of legal issues, how changes in law and society impact decision, and how to apply ethical frameworks to future decision-making, David Stader encourages candidates to analyze, evaluate, and synthesize legal knowledge and ethical frameworks and then present their own views in a logical, coherent manner.

Included are case studies designed to expose PK-12 leadership candidates to the ambiguity presented by many of the problems they will face as school leaders; Power Points and a test bank that includes decision sets similar to the SLLA and ISLLC certification examination; an overview of several new U.S. Supreme Court decisions impacting PK-12 education; an emphasis on school safety issues; a look at student and employee use of social media; and an overview of student-on-student victimization, including sexual harassment, bullying, cyber-bullying, dating violence, and sexting
