Ethics and the School Administrator. The Best of ERIC on Educational Management, Number 100.
ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management, Eugene, OR.
Included in this annotated bibliography of 11 publications are reports asserting that ethical values are an integral part of school leadership and must not be neglected in the pursuit of academic excellence. Subsequent reports suggest that adequate moral socialization should be demonstrated by school administrators, focus on the ethical principles that must guide administrators when divulging information, and outline whether teachers should assume the responsibility of developing and enforcing ethical standards in the school. The remaining documents reviewed suggest that routine decisions sometimes involve ethical values and can be perceived as a pattern of wrongdoing; that administrators must become aware of how values and ethics affect the way that their school is run; and that objective ethical reasoning is possible, important, and aids in the understanding of methods of ethical reflection.
