"A significant contribution by two of the most respected and thoughtful scholars in the field of educational ethics. Shapiro and Stefkovich provide the most coherent narrative to date on the significance of ethics for school leaders. No one does a better job of taking readers to the street level to teach the types of ethical issues which they will confront on the job."--Joseph F. Murphy, Frank W. Mayborn Chair of Education and Associate Dean at Peabody College, Vanderbilt University
"The first edition of this reader-friendly, accessible text quickly became a classic and a widely-used resource for faculty and students. This edition builds on the strengths of the original and will continue to be an important resource for the field."--Gail Furman, Professor, Department of Educational Leadership, Washington State University
