Book Description

February 5, 2005 0807745731 978-0807745731 3

This popular text features a rigorous yet practical approach to the difficult dilemmas that so often arise in school administration. Using case studies to illustrate particular ethical issues, the authors cover such topics as: standards; assessment and evaluation; equal opportunity; multiculturalism; religious differences; due process; freedom of expression; personal liberty; and authority.

Updated to address today's emphasis on meeting standards and raising test scores, the new Third Edition features new cases that discuss such current issues as zero tolerance policies and integrity in reporting data, and a revised chapter addressing the difficulty of focusing on standards while also dealing with competing demands, such as respecting the professional judgment of teachers, turning schools into learning communities, and engaging parents and members of the larger community in school life.

4.0 out of 5 stars No Easy Answers October 20, 2000
By A Customer
This book has several important themes for educational leaders. Chiefly they revolve around two ideas-- considering what is best for an individual in light of what is best for an institution. I read this book as the Minnesota Gopher basketball situation was emerging, so it created a great deal of dialogue in our class. In addition, several scenarios appear in the book that create interesting atmospheres for discussion. My one criticism of the book is that it could have developed more of an ethical decision making model. Overall, a good book for graduate students pursuing an administrative position.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ethics and Education. November 30, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book starts in a promising way with the discussion of a common situation and the ethical dilemmas attached. After this the book becomes meandering, slow and lacking energy. The writing is turgid, long sentences and paragraphs that are ponderous and mind numbing as you move through the book. There appears to be no development of models to assist the reader build a model to assist and guide their decsision making.
