Resolving Ethical Dilemmas in the Classroom.
Kidder, Rushworth M.; Born, Patricia L.
Educational Leadership, v56 n4 p38-41 Dec-Jan 1998-1999
Ethical teaching dilemmas generally fit four patterns: individual versus community, truth versus loyalty, short-term versus long-term, and justice versus mercy. Research discloses five core shared values: compassion, honesty, fairness, responsibility, and respect. When choosing among end-, rule-, and care-based resolution approaches, teachers' actions should reflect their professed values. (MLH)
