Notes

Abstract: Special education is experiencing the 􀂟ffects of
educational r􀂠form. Examples include rethinking of service delivery,
collaborative versus authoritarian leadership, teambuilding and
inclusionary practices replace exclusionary practices, and diversity
issues. These changes are creating ethical and moral dilemmas for
school administrators. In forming moral judgements, two voices are
distinguishable: the voice of care, connection, protection from h&rm,
and response; and the voice of justice, equality, reciprocity, and
rights. Women tend to choose a care orientation while men tend to
choose a justice orientation. The competence of caring and intuition
has just as much importance as that of justice, and needs to be
assimilated into the leadership and organizational theories for
educational administration. This approach can be applied to special
education service delivery and administrative practice through
consideration of such issues as placement of minority students,
services to individuals with disabilities as well as their
caregivers, shared educational responsibility, participatory
opportunities for parents, and the impact of Outcome Based Education.
