Description

For courses focusing on administrative ethics for individuals in leadership positions.

The ethical ideas and notions of 20 philosophers and psychologists are applied to the practice of educational leadership in an ethical framework grounded in the human dignity of each person.

This book presents a foundations approach to educational ethics which applies theory to practice using case studies, exercises, discussion statements, and questions. Through the ethical ideas and notions of 20 philosophers and psychologists—from the Ancient Historical Period, the Modern Period, and the Contemporary Historical Period. Through this presentation, tomorrow’s educational leaders can evaluate the philosophical ideas of others and use what they discover to develop their own way of approaching their leadership responsibilities. In this new edition, five new chapters deal with the legal aspect of ethics, and how communication creates the milieu within which ethics is practiced.

Each chapter begins with a scenario that orientates readers to the content of the chapter. Exercises in some chapters also help to apply the content to the practice of educational leadership. And a Quick Review section and Discussion Statements and Questions section in each chapter focuses on the highlights of the chapters.
