Question description

Develop a one page (single spaced) Case Study that presents a real-world professional ethics dilemma based on your experience. Your dilemma should be about Professor-Student Relationship.  The following two quotes should illuminate the issue.

"If the modern teacher will think of himself not so much as a schoolmaster but as a life master doing from another angle what the social worker does in his sphere, then he will be striving for all the knowledge available which could help him in his task. He will try to educate a generation of youth which combines emotional stability with a flexible mind; yet he will only succeed if he is capable of seeing each of the problems of the new generation against the background o f a changing world"

Karl Mannheim

“Liberal tolerance, he writes, is a cover for cowardice because it encourages teachers to not deal with students as whole people. As professional teachers, we are often urged to deal only with parts of our students-the parts learning philosophy. We are cautioned against entering into full human relationships with students, with the admonition that to do so would be unprofessional. Refusing to care about what my students believe-being tolerant of all substantive beliefs-is part of this attitude of alienated and cowardly professionalism” 

Hugh Wilder
