Conscience, Community Mores and Administrative Responsibility: A Prologue.
Manley-Casimir, Michael E.
Discussed is the apparent tension that school administrators may experience between community demands for administrative compliance on the one hand and the personal imperative for defensible moral action on the other. The paper uses conceptual analysis as its method, informed by discussion of practical administrative situations. The first part of the paper conceptualizes the problem of conscience in terms of the "voices of conscience" articulated by Thomas Green. The second part looks at tensions at work in the context of school administration. The third section focuses on the nature of administrative responsibility in the context of the discussion of conscience and community mores and offers an approach to reconciling the apparent contradiction. Appended are nine references. (SI)
