Abstract:


Leadership of an educational institution can be very complex.  Operating within institutions of learning are varying values of individuals and the institution itself.  As a result, addressing dilemmas that will arise can be very challenging. Ethical issues may not be an obligation of the leadership but it has been found to be a useful tool in solving problems in educational institutions.  The presentation therefore seeks to highlight the use of ethical frames as a means of looking at challenges from a holistic viewpoint, which should help in creating an effective institution of learning.
