Using case studies to illustrate particular ethical issues, the authors cover such topics as: standards • assessment and evaluation • equal opportunity • multiculturalism • religious differences • due process • freedom of expression • personal liberty • and authority.
Updated to address today’s emphasis on meeting standards and raising test scores, the new Third Edition features:

“Just like ethical practices, this book isn’t easy, but it’s good for you—and education.”
