Jeb Stewart's Dilemma
Cedo, Kelli M.; Dickerson, William E.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v13 n3 p1-6 Sep 2010
This case study creates a dilemma that many school districts face. Public education is under-funded. Principals are expected to be the instructional leaders and are held accountable for student achievement. Is it appropriate then for public schools to have local businesses as benefactors when teaching personnel are involved? The conflict between teacher quality and a local benefactor sometimes present ethical dilemmas. To what lengths should educational leaders go in order to secure school donations? As a principal you must be prepared to handle political and ethical situations, but foremost in your decision making must be, "What is best for the students."
