This book looks at ethics in educational administration from a practical perspective—viewing significant ethical issues in building and central office administration—and organizes the content to address the requirements of ISLLC Standard Five. The presentation begins with a treatment of personal ethical development, moves to the practice of educational leadership, continues with the issues of pluralism, and concludes with an ethical orientation self-assessment instrument.
Writings of major philosophers and important ethical public documents are used as touchstones upon which ethical analysis is developed, while case studies offer readers the opportunity to see how theory is put into practice. Some of the selected readings include contributions from Jean-Paul Sartre, Immanuel Kant, Aristotle, Jürgen Habermas, John Stuart Mill, Edith Stein, Simone de Beauvoir, and John Rawls.
For professionals in human resource administration and other management level positions.
