The fourth edition of the best-selling text, Ethical Leadership and Decision Making in Education, continues to address the increasing interest in ethics and assists educational leaders with the complex dilemmas in today’s challenging and diverse society. Through discussion and analysis of real-life moral dilemmas that educational leaders face in their schools and communities, authors Shapiro and Stefkovich demonstrate the application of the four ethical paradigms—the ethics of justice, care, critique, and profession. After an illustration of how the Multiple Ethical Paradigm approach may be applied to real dilemmas, the authors present a series of cases written by students and academics in the field representing the dilemmas faced by practicing educational leaders in urban, suburban, and rural settings in an era full of complications and contradictions. Following each case are questions that call for thoughtful, complex thinking and help readers come to grips with their own ethical codes and apply them to practical situations. New in the Fourth Edition: A new chapter on technology versus respect, focusing on ethical issues such as cyber-bullying and sexting. New cases on teachers with guns, the military and education, children of undocumented immigrants, homeless students, videos in bathrooms, incentive pay, first responders, private alternative high schools, verbal threats, and gaming etiquette. Updates throughout to reflect contemporary issues and recent scholarship in the field of ethical leadership. This edition adds teaching notes for the instructor that stress the importance of self-reflection, use of new technologies, and global appeal of ethical paradigms and dilemmas. Easily adaptable to a variety of uses, this book is a critical resource for a wide range of audiences, including both aspiring and practicing administrators, teacher leaders, and educational policy makers.

Die „Furcht vor der Freiheit“ ist eines der grundlegenden Werke Fromms, in dem er sich mit der Bedeutung von Freiheit für den modernen Menschen beschäftigt. Seine These lautet, dass sich der moderne Mensch von den Fesseln der vor-individualistischen Gesellschaft befreit hat; da diese ihm gleichzeitig Sicherheit gab und ihm Grenzen setzte, fühlt er sich isoliert und allein und entwickelt eine „Furcht vor der Freiheit“. Der Einzelne meidet die Freiheit, weil er mit ihr noch nicht umzugehen weiß. Somit bleibt der Mensch aus Fromms Sicht noch hinter seinen intellektuellen, emotionalen und sinnlichen Möglichkeiten zurück. Hieraus ergibt sich für ihn die Konsequenz, dass der Mensch aufgrund von Ohnmachtsgefühlen und der daraus entstehenden Angst neue Ausformungen von Hörigkeitssystemen aufsucht, die ihm scheinbare Sicherheit bieten. Dieses Werk ist die erste Monographie Erich Fromms und legt mit der Entwicklung des „autoritären Charakters“ den Grundstein zu seinen Charakterstudien, die er in späteren Werken weiter ausformuliert. Aus dem Inhalt: • Freiheit – ein psychologisches Problem? • Das Auftauchen des Individuums und das Doppelgesicht der Freiheit • Freiheit im Zeitalter der Reformation • Die beiden Aspekte der Freiheit für den modernen Menschen • Fluchtmechanismen • Die Psychologie des Nazismus • Freiheit und Demokratie

Vertrauen bildet die Grundlage für alle Beziehungen und jede Form der Kommunikation, für alle Individuen, Unternehmen, Organisationen und Zivilisationen rund um den Globus. Mangelndes Vertrauen zerstört auch die erfolgreichsten Unternehmen, die mächtigste Regierung und die florierendste Wirtschaft. Trotz der offensichtlich immensen Macht von Vertrauen spielt es im realen Geschehen kaum eine Rolle und gehört wohl zu den am meisten unterschätzten Faktoren unserer Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft. Stephen M. R. Covey zeigt in seinem viel beachteten Buch „Schnelligkeit durch Vertrauen“, dass Vertrauen kein weicher Faktor ist, sondern ein pragmatischer und realer Wert, den man erschaffen und zur Handlungsgrundlage machen kann. Er präsentiert konkrete Vertrauensregeln und Prinzipien und zeigt, wie auf allen Ebenen eines Unternehmens Vertrauen aufgebaut, gelebt und gefördert werden kann. Seine These: Vertrauen ist eine Schlüsselkompetenz und ein Art Teilchenbeschleuniger für die Wirtschaft.

In Ethical Leadership, Robert Starratt—one of the leading thinkers on the topic of ethics and education—shows educational leaders how to move beyond mere technical efficiency in the delivery and performance of learning. He challenges educators to become ethical leaders who understand the learning process as a profoundly moral activity that engages the full humanity of the school community. Starratt explains that educational leadership requires a moral commitment to high quality learning for all students—a commitment based on three essential virtues: proactive responsibility; personal and professional authenticity; and an affirming, critical, and enabling presence to the workers and the work involved in teaching and learning. He clarifies how essential these virtues are for leadership in the pressure-cooker of high-stakes schooling. He provides vivid illustration by beginning and ending the book with a "morality play," the narrative of a principal who struggles to do the right thing for his students and teachers, as they are pressured—and often punished—by state mandated tests. Starratt concludes by offering practical suggestions for working leaders as well as preservice and inservice courses in educational leadership. This book is a volume in the Jossey-Bass Leadership Library in Education—a series designed to meet the demand for new ideas and insights about leadership in schools.
