Abstract

Developing a culture of trust is the first and foremost responsibility of the ethical leader, without which we will be unable to examine some uncomfortable truths about the systems we have in place to educate children. In addition, we must be willing to open the practices of the school to community scrutiny. The stories of documented educational achievements of poor and minority students have grown in number in recent years, leading Reeves, in Crusade in the Classroom (2001), to conclude that "Given the clear evidence that children can be successful, the focus of accountability moves from the consequences for students to the consequences for teachers and school leaders" (p. 23). Ethical leaders will stand accountable for the deficiencies in their schools, and will demonstrate their readiness to positively influence the educational program for all students and families.
