The Ethics of Student-Faculty Friendships.
Baker, Richard L., Jr.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n66 p25-32 Sum 1996
An important ethical task is for the college faculty member to handle the teacher-student relationship well outside the classroom. May Sarton's novel "The Small Room" depicts both success and failure. The teacher should always act as a friend, seeking the good of the student for the student's own sake and recognizing this as a unique form of friendship. (Author/MSE)
