ED720/Lecture/1 - Ethical Leadership in Educational Adm | Credits 3.00
Educators today are faced with meeting the needs of students in an increasingly complex and diverse society. Educational leaders are charged not only with promoting academic excellence for students within the context of standards-based reform initiatives, but also for making ethical decisions founded on moral principles. There are no easy solutions to the ethical problems that educational leaders face on a daily basis. The values and principles which guide ethical decision-making will be studied, with the objective of teaching students how to develop a process for examining those ethical issues. Students will explore how to combine and/or adapt ideas stemming from foundational ethical theories as they face dilemmas and difficult decisions. Students will analyze case studies through a multiple paradigm approach. Through this process incorporating self-awareness, self-reflection, and self-critique, students will acquire the ability to analyze, respond, and assess their responses to ethical dilemmas, such as making policy decisions, maintaining communication with community members and district administrators, as well as dealing with staff and student relations. Participants will gain an understanding of how to transfer their ethical self-awareness and knowledge to the educational leader's job of dealing with personnel, students, and community members in a fair and equitable manner with professional integrity.
