    Good case studies; horrible editing

    I read this book for an ethics class and found that it would be a good read for all practicing teachers. It has numerous case studies covering topics like religion, punishment and due process, and students' rights. I recommend that it be used in teacher book studies to help school faculty discuss potential ethical situations in their school. The biggest downfall of this book is its editing. There are an abundance of typographical errors (missing punctuation, omitted words, wrong chapter headings, etc). Within my first six minutes of reading, I encountered six errors! It's as if the publisher was in a hurry to meet a deadline.
