Description:

Appropriate for educational leaders at all levels of professional development, this brief book emphasizes the practical application of contrasting philosophical and ethical concepts to realistic educational leadership challenges. Recognizing that educational administrators are required to make decisions in problem situations without ideal solutions, this book provides a philosophical and theoretical base along with practical suggestions and activities for making the best decisions possible in difficult situations. The book emphasizes the practical uses of philosophy and ethics by educational leaders. As this principle is pursued, the following objectives serve as a guide to content and organization: To establish the importance of developing ethical educational organizations, leading to motivation for ethical decision-making. To show how philosophy and ethical theory contribute to ethical organizations and their leaders. To develop awareness and sensitivity to what is ethically at stake in a situation. To lay the groundwork for a theoretical framework from which the theory and practice of ethics in educational administration can be guided. To be aware of the need for knowledge of the task, the situation, the group, the individuals involved, and oneself.
