Ethical issues are extremely important to teaching today in both special and general education. National education policies like NCLB tend to create many more ethical dilemmas for teachers. This is especially true for teachers who try to serve the needs of children and represent realities to their administrators, parents, and colleagues while living with increasingly irrational, unrealistic demands for their performance and the performance of their students. -- James M. Kauffman, Ed.D., professor emeritus of education, University of Virginia [This book] address[es] the ethical issues that have become a reality and constant concern in the life of the modern teacher. -- Tina M. Rosenthal, theology teacher, Academy of Holy Angels (MN) Each page I open to grabs me - the practical, case study-oriented approach stimulates memories of personal experiences. I would love to sit in with a group of teachers who were discussing it. -- Frank Wood, Professor Emeritus of the University of Minnesota This book is indispensable because it is a guide for others to use... in developing and maintaining professional practices. Each of the chapters is a building block for an individual to become an ethical educator who can make a positive difference in a person's life. -- Ina Summer Schaffer, special education coordinator, Waukegan High School (IL)
