Here is a research-based book to help school administrators understand and more effectively deal with the ethical compromises that arise as a result of the complex organizational and interpersonal demands of their leadership roles. Dan Mahoney combines personal knowledge, candid revelations, and interview data from five dedicated school administrators to show how they are able to achieve the greater good. Ethics and the School Administrator tells the real-life story of educators' professional experiences and gives a practical examination of their decision-making process. Recommendations for professional practice are included. This book will be of interest to principals, superintendents, school board members, and professors and students in educational leadership programs.
Dan Mahoney is associate professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Administration at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington. He teaches courses in ethics, educational evaluation, and curricular design.
