Kearney, W. Sean; Smith, Page A.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v12 n3 p26-32 2009
The article discusses a case study that stems from actual events, targets the issue of ethics in schools, and is applicable for use in a variety of educational leadership courses. The article examines the issues related to ethical responsibilities and high-stakes testing in public schools. The administration must decide what actions to take following the questionable practices of a teacher during the administration of a standardized test. The decisions of the parent, teacher, and principal will have an impact not only on the students currently enrolled in the class but also on the future educational practices within this campus and district.
