Since publication of the original edition of this book, there have been significant changes across the landscape of special education. This new edition addresses those changes and revisits enduring ethical issues that are most salient and pressing to special education teachers and administrators. Using a case-based approach, this popular text encourages students to reason and collaborate about ethical issues rather than simply master a set of principles and precepts. The issues highlighted in this volume include due process, the distribution of educational resources, institutional unresponsiveness, professional relationships, conflicts among parents and teachers, and confidentiality. The Ethics of Special Education emphasizes the perspectives and predicaments of special educators, but is also germane to the professional lives of a much wider range of individuals, from classroom teachers engaged in inclusion to administrators and school psychologists involved in negotiating IEPs (Individualized Education Programs). “Readers of The Ethics of Special Education will find real-world ethical dilemmas that reflect the current laws and trends in special education policy and practice. As a researcher in the field, a lawyer, a former teacher, and as a parent, I recommend this book for all those who help students with disabilities succeed in life. This casebook highlights the importance of reasoned exploration and empathy when attempting to solve the kind of hard questions faced by members of school communities across the nation. There are no simple answers, but for all stakeholders, this book will help you develop a clearer understanding of sound approaches to the difficult problems that you will likely grapple with.” —Daniel Losen, director, Center for Civil Rights Remedies “Opportunities to access, participate, and learn alongside a diverse range of public school students are vital to the success of students who have dis/abilities. It has never been more important for educators to work deliberately and ethically to ensure that their choices for curriculum, pedagogies, and learning outcomes benefit the learners they serve. Neoliberal politics, raced assumptions about what counts as learning, and the forced march towards globalization challenge educators. Decisions about who enters special education, for what purpose and whose benefit, are fraught. Howe and Boele’s new edition extends the vision that Miramontes had for schools that embraced all who entered.” —Elizabeth B. Kozleski, University of Kansas

This thought-provoking volume confronts the expected tension between care and justice as moral orientations. These original essays, by renowned educators, reveal how these two moral orientations can work together to produce wiser and more practical policies and practices. The authors explore problems at every level of education and tackle tough questions in theory, practice, and policy making. Using real-life examples, they illustrate the great value of theoretical collaboration, instead of competing with each other, justice and care should complement each other in both moral theory and practice.
