Building an ethical school : a practical response to the moral crisis in schools by Robert J Starratt( )

15 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 1,883 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dr Starratt convincingly argues for much greater attention to ethical education and responds to sceptics who say that it cannot be done in the face of a pluralistic, secular society badly fragmented over values. Seeking always for themes and issues that unite rather than divide, he provides a conceptual foundation for ethical education, broad enough for building consensus among teachers and parents, yet focused enough to provide guidance for highly specific learning activities. The second half of the book takes the reader through a carefully devised series of steps by which a school community might proceed in building their ethical school. Although it is conceded they will be faced by many difficulties along the way, the final chapter offers encouragement to strengthen the resolve of the school community."--Jacket

The drama of leadership by Robert J Starratt( )

20 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Starratt, a teacher of people in leadership positions, presents the foundations for the theory of leadership. Based on a framework divided into building blocks, various concepts of leadership such as values, change, power and structure are explained and analyzed, and ways of incorporating them into school management are addressed. He presents a picture of leadership as a variety of disciplines - history, philosophy, psychology, politics, sociology, theology - amongst others, and with the idea that the student of leadership must be one of change.; This text is primarily intended for headmasters, education managers and administrators, students and lecturers in education and philosophers of education
Centering educational administration : cultivating meaning, community, responsibility by Robert J Starratt( )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 1,495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starratt enters the national conversation among educational administration scholars and practitioners about what constitutes the core of their knowledge and practice. In Part I, he develops three main themes--cultivating meaning, community, and moral responsibility--which he then positions against national themes about the core of educational administration: school improvement, democratic community, and social justice. Rather than focusing on the routine managerial tasks normally associated with school administration (budgeting, personnel and legal problems, time and resource management, etc.), this text asks aspiring school leaders to reflect first on the underlying philosophical and sociological perspectives that constitute the substance of administrative work in education

Ethical leadership by Robert J Starratt( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Swedish and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Starratt explains that educational leadership requires a moral commitment to high quality learning for all students - a commitment based on three essential virtues: proactive responsibility, personal and professional authenticity, and an affirming, critical, and enabling presence to the workers and the work involved in teaching and learning. He clarifies how essential these virtues are for leadership in the pressure-cooker of high-stakes schooling. He provides a vivid illustration in the story of a principal who struggles to do the right thing for his students and teachers, as they are pressured - and often punished - by state mandated tests. Starratt concludes by offering practical suggestions for aspiring and working leaders."--Jacket

Cultivating an ethical school by Robert J Starratt( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Often the school is left as an institution seemingly ethically neutral, leaving untouched questions about whether the school itself is a site of injustice toward both educators and children. Springing from his well-known "Building an Ethical School", Robert J. Starratt now looks more closely at the educational leader's responsibility to ensure that the whole fabric of the educational process reflects an ethical philosophy of education. Starratt argues that the work of educating young people is by its very nature an ethical work as well as an intellectual work, and that this work inescapably engages educators and their pupils with an academic curriculum, a social curriculum, and a civic curriculum. "Cultivating an Ethical School" lays a foundation for educators seeking to cultivate a comprehensive ethical educating environment. The second half of the book then takes up the more specific perspectives on teaching and learning that constitute the heart of cultivating an ethical school. Starratt provides examples of how an ethical school can expose students to a variety of perspectives on the challenges they will be called upon to face in the worlds of culture, nature, and society. This valuable book shows leaders and educators the importance of organizing a curriculum and a pedagogy that simultaneously respects and cultivates the intellectual, personal, and social qualities of being human"--Provided by publisher
The drama of schooling : the schooling of drama by Robert J Starratt( Book )

11 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starratt's highly original book offers fresh insights into the nature of teaching, learning, schooling as a multi-cultural, social enterprise, and the importance of vision for that leadership-by using the analogy of drama. Schooling is a preparation to participate in the social drama, both as an individual and as a community. Beyond participation, schooling can enable youngsters to maintain and restore the human purposes of the social drama. This unique book accommodates present critics of schools from both the left and the right, but goes beyond them to offer a script for restoring the sch
