ETHICAL DILEMMA

Given the number of moral quandaries teachers face every year (even every day), posthipchick wonders why teacher-preparation programs don’t offer courses in ethics. But even as she ponders a stimulating curriculum made up of readings in ethical philosophy and reflective peer discussion, she answers her own question:


ah, the lightbulb just went off. this is far too high-brow for credentialing programs. they do not want to waste time with this sort of thinking when there is that great opportunity to watch your classmates perform yet another lesson plan to the same group of adults.

And last we checked, unfortunately, proficiency in philosphical ethics wasn't part of the NCLB's definition for "highly qualified teacher."
