Description

Law and Ethics in Educational Leadership, 2/e presents a real-world, problem-based approach that shows leadership candidates how to apply the legal knowledge, ethical dispositions, and other skills necessary to become successful school leaders. In a user-friendly, coherent approach to the study of legal issues the author shows how changes in law and society impact decision-making, and how to apply ethical frameworks to their own future decision-making. Included are numerous opportunities to analyze, evaluate, and synthesize legal knowledge and ethical frameworks to begin thinking like school leaders. Illustrative case studies show readers the ambiguity presented by many problems they will face as school leaders and encourage them to analyze the circumstances surrounding the dilemma and respond appropriately.
