Description

Teachers face moral and ethical dilemmas and decisions on a daily basis. Yet,they are expected to make difficult and sometimes uneducated decisions between competing ethical demands. This study aims to determine the quality of ethics education in undergraduate music education curriculum to determine how best to teach pre-service educators to be ethical and ultimately effective leaders. This study was conducted through use of a survey. The survey was sent to 467 current PCMEA members and 25 Music Education Coordinators. Survey responses indicated that ethics education varied drastically between programs, leaving some students unprepared to make ethical decisions within the profession of music education. Furthermore, there is a discrepancy between what Music Education Coordinators reported to be teaching and what students felt they had learned. As such,it is the author's contention that a reevaluation of ethics-related curriculum in pre-service music education programs takes place in order to produce ethical and prepared future music educators.
