Power, Pretense, and Piggybacking. Some Ethical Issues in Teaching.
Wilson, Everett K.
Journal of Higher Education, v53 n3 p268-81 May-Jun 1982
Academic patterns of power (over students, curriculum, etc.), pretense (faculty claims about competence and experience), and piggybacking (conversion of institutions into education conglomerates) reveal some ethical issues. The patterns are deeply rooted, each with historical reason for being and current justification, yet each has outcomes that diminish teaching effectiveness. (MSE)
