Book Thumbnail Ethical leadership
Robert J. Starratt
(158 Pages) 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.
