The Active/Ethical Professional: A Framework for Responsible Educators

by Michael Gerard Gunzenhauser

“The Active/Ethical Professional proposes an ethical framework for educators and school leaders who find their practice constrained by the demands of policies and structures created in response to accountability legislation. The framework is derived from Michel Foucault’s theories of discipline, surveillance, resistance, and care of the self.”
