“One of the best ethics primers for teachers and administrators that I have ever read.”
—From the Foreword by Robert J. Nash
“Should find a place in every school. Zubay and Soltis present a stunning variety of gritty and morally challenging cases fresh from the classroom that stimulate our ethical sense and challenge us to think anew. I recommend that all teachers read this book and discuss it with their colleagues.”
—Michael G. Thompson, coauthor of “ Best Friends, Worst Enemies” and “ Raising Cain”
“Captures the degree to which teachers, school administrators, parents, and students live in a world of minute-to-minute ethical choices. These are provocative, realistic case studies that will prompt energetic discussion.”
—Tyler C. Tingley, Principal, Phillips Exeter Academy
