Resolving Ethical Issues at School
Benninga, Jacques S.
Issues in Teacher Education, v22 n1 p77-88 Spr 2013
Although ethical dilemmas are a constant in teachers' lives, the profession has offered little in the way of training to help teachers address such issues. This paper presents a framework, based on developmental theory, for resolving professional ethical dilemmas. The Four-Component Model of Moral Maturity, when used in conjunction with a professional code of ethics, can help teachers determine and understand the important issues of an ethical situation and can provide guidance for conflict resolution. An example of an ethical dilemma and the mechanism for its resolution is provided. (Contains 1 figure.)
