Jan. 24, 2012 - PRLog -- ROCKPORT, Maine – Independent school leaders from throughout Tennessee will learn how to integrate ethics into their decision-making and communication with all stakeholders at a “Tone-at-the-Top” seminar presented by Paula Mirk, director of education at the Institute for Global Ethics (IGE).

The school administrators are members of the Tennessee Association of Independent Schools (TAIS). Ms. Mirk’s presentation is scheduled for January 27, 2012, at the Franklin Road Academy in Nashville.

The TAIS seminar will address the articulation and analysis of shared values that are in conflict in real-life, right-versus-right ethical dilemmas and how to build the conditions necessary to support a school’s culture of integrity, using IGE’s Ethical Literacy® best practices.

The session will also explore IGE’s “Schools of Integrity” ( research drawn from schools known for their successful balance of academic rigor and attention to the ethical development of young people. From this research, seminar participants will be able to rate their own schools and explore the strengths and needs this exercise reveals.

“This presentation will be extremely valuable for our schools because it will strengthen their ability to handle tough ethical decisions in the best possible way,” said Rich Martin, TAIS executive director. “I would urge every independent school leader to give their senior administrators this training. Not only will it help them make better decisions, but it will enable them to model key qualities that will nurture a culture of integrity in their schools.”

The Tennessee Association of Independent Schools is a nonprofit, voluntary association of 56 schools located throughout Tennessee. For more information, visit:
