The Art of Moral Decision Making in Educational Research.
Fetterman, David M.
Moral decision-making is an essential element in educational research. The dilemmas examined and explored in this review were drawn from the author's experience as an ethnographic evaluator and consultant in a bay area educational research corporation for the last five years. The major concerns addressed include: conflicting expectations between sponsor and researcher, conflicting roles and interests of the researcher, and the research report--the publication and dissemination of findings. The creation of a report is often the product of a delicate interplay between the academy and advocacy. In addition, job stress and burnout are discussed. (BW)
