AbstractThe paper describes a course designed to fulfill the ethics requirement for certification of school administrators, who must be prepared to make and explain decisions on the basis of ethical principles. The course uses a combination of case, argument, and moral theoretic analysis to encourage students to think through the ethical dimensions of situations they may encounter in professional life, and to articulate and examine the ethical premises on which they would act. The paper illustrates the methods of analysis used through examples involving commercial activity in schools, community service requirements, and questionable grading practices.
