Truth-Telling in the UK Jewish Studies Classroom for Orthodox Educators
Burman, Chaim
Journal of Jewish Education, v83 n4 p310-338 2017
UK Orthodox Jewish educators face a number of ethical dilemmas surrounding truth-telling in the classroom. While they must comply with government legislation and high standards of professional conduct, they may also wish their practice to be informed by halachic considerations. This theoretical study explores the potential tensions that may arise when allegiances to the above areas lead to conflicting courses of action, and attempts to plot a course of appropriate conduct that can satisfy all considerations. Direct distortion is identified as an inappropriate tool, whereas omission of content that will hinder students' Orthodox development is considered preferable to unfiltered disclosure.
