Can Power Support an "Ethic of Care"? An Examination of the Professional Practices of Women Superintendents.
Brunner, C. Cryss
Journal for a Just and Caring Education, v4 n2 p142-75 Apr 1998
Drawing on relevant literature and a qualitative study of 13 women superintendents, this article explains why an ethic of care is essential. Many women in positions of power use a collaborative, social-production model because they are uncomfortable with a social-control model and because they believe relationships are important. Study participants' ethics model was based on taking care of relationships and children. (107 references) (MLH)
