Ethical Leadership and Decision Making in Education: Applying Theoretical Perspectives to Complex Dilemmas
The third edition of the best-selling text, Ethical Leadership and Decision Making in Education, continues to address the increasing interest in ethics and assists educational leaders with the complex dilemmas in today's challenging and diverse society. Through discussion and analysis of real-life moral dilemmas that educational leaders face in their schools and communities, authors Shapiro and Stefkovich demonstrate the application of their four ethical paradigms-the ethics of justice, care, critique, and profession. After an illustration of how the Multiple Ethical Paradigm approach may be applied to real dilemmas, the authors present a series of cases written by students and academics in the field representing the dilemmas faced by practicing educational leaders in urban, suburban, and rural settings in an era full of complexities and contradictions. Following each case are questions that call for thoughtful, complex thinking and help readers come to grips with their own ethical codes and apply them to practical situations. New in the Third Edition: * An entire new chapter on privacy versus safety, including ethical issues such as strip searches, gang membership, cyber-bullying, and sexting. * New cases infused into chapters on early childhood education, diverse student populations, and technology. * Updates throughout to reflect contemporary issues and recent scholarship in the field of ethical leadership. Including teaching notes for the instructor stressing the importance of self-reflection, this text is easily adaptable for a variety of uses with a wide range of audiences. Ethical Leadership and Decision Making in Education is a valuable book for both aspiring and practicing administrators, teacher leaders, and educational policy makers.

Dragonfly Games: Developing and Supporting Dyslexic Learners 7-14
Dragonfly Games are designed for use with small groups of dyslexic pupils. The practical and varied resources can also be used outside of the classrooom to encourage over-learning and revision of curriculum topics. Stimulating and fun to do, the games help pupils to: overcome specific barriers to learning through the use of experience, over-learning and discovery; master skills beyond those of literacy and numeracy development, including thinking skills, tactical strategies, sequential application and gamesmanship; and devise their own games, developing their ability to use varied methods of application useful for overcoming learning weaknesses within their own specific profile. As the games are heavily loaded with luck, the chance of success does not depend on the pupil's performance. This helps to encourage players to participate fully, in an environment that is pupil-friendly and very enjoyable.

Muslim Education in the 21st Century: Asian perspectives
Muslim Education in the 21st Century reinvestigates the current state of affairs in Muslim education in Asia whilst at the same time paying special attention to Muslim schools' perception of educational changes and the reasons for such changes. It highlights and explores the important question of whether the Muslim school has been reinventing itself in the field of pedagogy and curriculum to meet the challenges of the 21st century education. It interrogates the schools whose curriculum content carry mostly the subject of religion and Islam as its school culture. Typologically, these include state-owned or privately-run madrasah or dayah in Aceh, Indonesia; pondok, traditional Muslim schools largely prevalent in the East Malaysian states and Indonesia; pesantren, Muslim boarding schools commonly found in Indonesia; imam-khatip schools in Turkey, and other variations in Asia. Contributed by a host of international experts, Muslim Education in the 21st Century focuses on how Muslim educators strive to deal with the educational contingencies of their times and on Muslim schools' perception of educational changes and reasons for such changes. It will be of great interest to anyone interested in Asian and Muslim education.

Grade Retention and Social Promotion: Toward the Social and Cognitive Competence of Students
Each year nearly 2.5 million elementary school children are failed. Economic analyses suggest that this costs taxpayers over US$20 billion each year. Given the recent political momentum pushing for increased standards and accountability in our schools, actions toward an end to social promotion are occurring nationally. However, the research during the past 30 years fails to demonstrate the effectiveness of early grade retention as an academic intervention. In addition to the economic and structural problems created by ineffective focus on retention, this practice and policy also has significal educational repercussions for students. Grade Retention and Social Promotion examines retention as an academic intervention, presenting perspectives on the long history of research regarding the efficacy of this strategy, as well as new thinking on the topic. Drawing on both socio-emotional and academic outcomes over the years, this book presents the first complete book account of the theory and practice behind grade retention, as well as the obvious and more subtle practical outcomes. For the very first time, this book brings together current research on this controversial practice affecting teachers and students nationwide. Shane Jimerson is Professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara in the Department of Counseling, Clinical, and School Psychology in the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education Aaron Haddock is currently completing a Ph.D. program in Counseling, Clinical, and School Psychology at the University of California, Santa Barbara

Professional Governance of Teacher Education: Principles and Pitfalls
What lies in the future for teacher education? Should it be removed from universities and consigned to schools under strict government control? Should professional preparation be done away with entirely on the grounds that only subject matter knowledge is needed? Or should it stay in the university context as befits a profession but be governed by the profession? This book argues for the latter option. Such a choice represents a direction that serves to protect important pedagogical values embedded in teacher education programs in a manner that ultimately safeguards the public interest. Without it, teacher education would come either under direct government control (no longer benign) or be consigned to schools. But the book also exposes the complexities and nuanced difficulties that the self-regulation option poses for the governance and operation of teacher education. It is the road less travelled, filled with contestation, in an era of intense neo-liberalist pressure toward market choices and de-regulation, but it is also a road we must travel if we believe in the viable contribution of teacher education to society. This book sheds light on that journey. It traces how we have arrived at self-regulation in education at a time when it is under close scrutiny in other professions. More importantly, it describes from the inside the intricacies of contestation and what can be done to co-construct a way forward toward the desired balance of institutional program autonomy and rigorous protection of the public trust. It will show how accreditation processes potentially distort this balance and how it can be disentangled; it will highlight the difficulties that both teacher education institutions and professional bodies have in keeping their eye firmly on the societal purposes of accountability thereby ensuring that the public trust is actually safeguarded; and it will characterize the necessary struggles that teacher educators must engage under self-regulation if they are to protect the public interest by defending the knowledge base that is central to the profession.

Ethics for Educational Technology and Instructional Design: An Applied Introduction
We are beginning to learn that the success of educational technologies lies less in the technologies themselves than in our ability to engage in thoughtful, ethical design around the system into which we are introducing innovations. As a result, the interactions between technology and social systems must be more carefully considered. Ethics for Educational Technology and Instructional Design approaches those considerations through an applied ethics lens, providing a practical guide for students, researchers, and professionals to learn how to intentionally achieve desired results and safeguard against undesirable results. This innovative new book provides: * Original contributions from leading experts in the field that explain particularly complex or difficult concepts * Case studies that give practitioners & students examples of real world applications * Instructor and Student Resources via a companion website To situate ethics as a design activity, Moore provides a model for thinking about ethics in educational technology in an applied, practical manner and how it relates to the instructional design process. This book is an essential addition to the practitioner or researcher's library, as well as a valuable textbook for graduate courses on ethics in educational technology, e-learning, and instructional design.
