Prerequisite: Admission to M. Ed. program or permission of instructor.
In this course, future educational leaders learn how to be ethically and legally compliant in school operations that lead to the academic success of all P-12 students, including those with learning disabilities and those from linguistically and culturally diverse backgrounds. The ultimate goal of the course is to produce future leaders who are cognizant of their ethical and legal obligations in managing schools, and who understand and appreciate the importance of legal and ethical compliance to daily administrative practice (Levine, 2005). Additionally, future educational leaders learn how to act with integrity by demonstrating ethical and equitable leadership behaviors; abide by Georgia and federal law and the Code of Ethics for Georgia Educators in professional practice; manage school operations consistently with requirements of Georgia and federal law; and observe student and faculty legal rights and privileges.
