Summary "What happens when teachers face difficult options? Examining ourselves - why we do what we do - is the very essence of ethics and human psychology. The purpose of this book is not to illustrate the difference between right and wrong, but to show how educators might choose among ethical approaches to decision-making as they face the difficult choices they make every day. However, to be just and ethical, we need to know something about the demands of justice and how they apply in our own circumstances. What is fair? What is just? How do we decide? These are the central concerns of this book. Outstanding features of this book include theory-based ethics and case studies of real and significant issues that teachers face in P-12 classrooms."--BOOK JACKET.
