Teacher Ethics as a Research Problem: Syntheses Achieved and New Issues
Colnerud, Gunnel
Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, v12 n3 p365-385 Jun 2006
Research on teacher ethics and the moral dimensions of teaching has contributed to extensive and valuable knowledge, which has sometimes led to constructive syntheses of positions. Four research problems which have been elucidated are discussed in this article: the relationship between care and justice, the conflict between the ethics of virtue and the ethics of rules, the relationship between moral education and professional ethics and what is morally significant in the teaching profession. Furthermore, an invitation to renew the discussion and formulate the next generation of research problems is made. Two issues are proposed. First, to answer the question why is it so difficult to be a morally good teacher and, second, teachers' moral responsibility for the content taught.
