Abstract: The notion of ethics has been the focus of attention in educational leadership over time. This happens by no surprise given that values and ethics lie at the heart of leading learning and ethical dilemmas are ‘the bread and butter’ of educational leaders’ lives. However, what is actually ethics? What makes educational leadership ethical? What are the ethical dilemmas in it? And how could educational leaders respond to ethical dilemmas? By reviewing relevant literature and research in educational leadership from the last three decades, this paper seeks to find answers to these questions. It is found that although ethics is highly contested, there appears to be an agreement that it is about relationships. In addition, as both a profession and a moral activity, educational leadership is by itself an essentially ethical activity. The most troublesome ethical tensions emerge when leaders are faced with ‘right versus right’ dilemmas. By critically examining the key elements of various model s and approaches to confront ethical dilemmas, it is suggested there is a strong emphasis on the importance of being self-critical for educational leaders to be able to (re)solve ethical dilemmas.
