In 2019, Andy Hargreaves wrote, “One way to think about ethical leadership is that while morality is about right and wrong, ethics is about how to judge what’s right and wrong, and how to do what’s right.”
So how do we do judge what the right actions are?
Antiracism, gender discrimination, COVID-19, as well as the safety of LGBTQ students are issues that need our best ethical thinking. For some, these issues are controversial; for others, these issues are necessary to address for the health of a school community. Join host Peter DeWitt as he sits down with researchers Andy Hargreaves and Allison Skerrett to discuss practical steps you can take to bring deeper ethical thinking to your schools and districts.
