How to Implement the Ways of Knowing through the Realms of Meaning as an Ethical Decision-Making Process to Improve Academic Achievement--Ten Recommendations
Skinner, Desiree A.; Kritsonis, William Allan
Online Submission, National Journal for Publishing and Mentoring Doctoral Student Research v3 n1 2006
"Values, purposes, and understandings are fragile achievements and give way all too readily to attitudes of futility, frustration, and doubt" (Kritsonis, 2007, pg. 7). Ethical decision-making is one way for school leaders to contribute to improving education. Effecting change is the duty of school principals; this may often come in making decisions that are controversial, and give way to the question of ethics. An ethical dilemma occurs when electing one best moral action from two potentially correct options. Dr. William A. Kritsonis's book Ways of Knowing Through the Realms of Meaning (2007) can be a practical and valuable resource for navigating through these turbulent situations.
