Even If We Were All Scholars: The Teacher's Authority.
Block, Alan A.
International Journal of Leadership in Education, v2 n4 p337-51 Oct-Dec 1999
Examines teachers' eroding authority regarding curriculum, moral education, and ethical rigor. The destruction of the Second Temple (AD 70) produced an authority crisis in Jewish society when high priests and ritual sacrifices were eliminated. In response, rabbis redefined authority and vested it in the teacher-student relationship. (Contains 11 references.) (MLH)
