The ongoing global and national recession is in no small part due to a lack of ethical conduct by our leaders and institutions.  While many believe that increased regulation by government is the answer, this author asserts the need for a return to moral and ethical behaviors.  The educational leadership literature of the last two decades discusses the need for ethical and moral training of school administrators (Beck & Murphy, 1994; Fullan, 2003; Johnson, 2007, 2009; Sergiovanni, 1992; Strike, et al., 2005).   Today’s practicing educational leaders and the professors who teach in school administrator preparation programs share a moral imperative to ensure our school leaders are prepared to model ethical and moral practices.   This paper discusses key ethical principles and decision-making formats that should be an integral part of university preparation programs for school administrators and daily practice in the workplace.
