Ethical Educational Leadership in Turbulent Times
(Re) Solving Moral Dilemmas
Routledge – 2008 – 224 pages
This text is designed to assist educational leaders in the ethical decision-making process. Theoretically, it is based on Gross’s Turbulence Theory and Shapiro and Stefkovich’s Multiple Ethical Paradigms of justice, critique, care, and the profession. The authors clearly explain these concepts and demonstrate how they can work together to assist leaders in dealing with challenging situations. Authentic ethical dilemmas are provided to be analyzed using Turbulence Theory and the Multiple Ethical Paradigms and to engage readers in applying these concepts to practice. The text is intended for use in a range of educational leadership, educational administration, and teacher education programs that prepare both educational leaders (administrators) and lead teachers.
"This text appeals to aspiring and practicing administrators and provides the essential elements for examining critical issues in educational leadership…This book could be used at the graduate level as a supplemental text in leadership theory courses or as a required text in seminars on ethical leadership."--Education Review, June 201
