Cassandra in the Classroom: Teaching and Moral Madness
Santoro, Doris A.
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v36 n1 p49-60 Jan 2017
Moral madness is a symptom of the moral violence experienced by teachers who are expected to exercise responsibility for their students and their work, but whose moral voice is misrecognized as self-interest and whose moral agency is suppressed. I conduct a feminist ethical analysis of the figure of Cassandra to examine the ways in which teachers may be driven to moral madness.
