The Ethical Educator addresses critical aspects of ethical conduct related to teaching and teacher research. Identifying strategies and opportunities for reflection, it seeks to guide teachers and researchers in their quest for adherence to the highest level of ethical standards within their practice. Written from an educational perspective, this book will appeal especially to teachers engaged in research in classroom settings, those engaged in collaborative research within the university and school, and pre-service teachers. The book addresses the numerous ethical codes by which teachers are guided – those of their professional associations, as well as those set forth by teaching and research associations – and the many ways in which world issues challenge our systems of teaching and research, providing opportunities for self-reflection on ethical behavior.
