“You Have a Moral Obligation to Try”: Re-Envisioning Ethical Leadership in Complex Contexts. Patricia A. L. Ehrensal, College of New Jersey

The PBS Frontline program “Dropout Nation” followed the stories of 4 students and principal Gasparello, purportedly a “caring” and ethical principal. When 3 of the 4 students followed in the lm dropped out, he blames the students. Following from Foucault and Arendt, I conclude by unshackling themselves from prescribed measures of “student success” and addressing the needs of the students, principals can re-envision ethical leadership potential and place schools in a context of social justice.

An Aesthetic Examination of Ethical Decision Making Through Ethical Sensitivity, Moral Reasoning, and Moral Imagination. Patrick M. Jenlink, Stephen F. Austin State University

I examine, using educational poetics as a form of aesthetic inquiry, pedagogical
practices that incorporate a poetics of leadership activity. Poetics involves a deepening understanding and sensitivity to ethical reasoning and moral imagination and mirrors how events, actions, and the conduct of others can all express intellectual, aesthetic, and moral meaning. Poetics as an aesthetic mirror is examined in developing moral literacy and ethical frames of leadership. Four years of research data are reported.

Revitalizing Educational Organizations—Applying Ethical Leadership Praxis in Schools and Higher Educational Institutions. Penny Lee Tenuto, Mary Elisabeth Gardiner (University of Idaho, Boise)

The purpose of this integrative literature review was to draw together recognized streams of knowledge to inform contemporary educational leadership in democratic societies.
The Ethical Leadership Praxis in a Global Society model includes four synergistic and interactive dimensions. The paper makes an original contribution for building leadership praxis centered on ethical leadership. The model applies theory and encourages leaders to self-re ect on their own values, practices of leadership, and how their actions can create inclusivity.

School Leaders’ Experiences of Ethical Dilemmas. Tim Guy, Virginia Tech

This paper describes a study that used a hermeneutic phenomenological approach as described by Max Van Manen (1990) to explore experiences where issues of ethics are conspicuous, namely, in experiences school leaders had with ethical dilemmas. The study explored the question: How do school leaders experience ethical dilemmas in their role as school leaders? Understanding this experience will contribute to our understanding of ethics in the role of school leadership.
