Ethics & the Law: A Teacher's Guide to Decision Making.
Shaughnessy, Mary Angela; Shaughnessy, John
This text is intended as an aid to Catholic school teachers in the study of legal and ethical issues. In four chapters it attempts to do the following: (1) present basic information about ethics and the law; (2) offer 10 dilemmas in the form of brief case studies taken from school life; (3) provide a basis for discussion of the issues posed by the dilemmas; and (4) offer a model for legal/ethical decision making that is grounded in the set of moral values published by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops through the United States Catholic Conference and by the Sacred Congregation for Catholic Education (1982). A bibliography of legal citations is included. Appended to the text is the "Code of Ethics for the Catholic School Teacher" published by the Department of Elementary Schools of the National Catholic Educational Association. (AMH)
