Overview

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.
