Ethical Issues and Perspectives in Educational Practice and Policy
Format: World Wide Web
This course examines some of the major ways in which questions of ethical choice and moral judgement enter into the practices of educational administration, teaching, and the justification of educational policy. Selected readings and case studies will deal with such topics as educational aims, freedom, authority, compulsory education and equality. These materials will be used to illustrate both the distinctive character of ethical problems and the methods available for their resolution. Some major ethical theories will be examined as philosophical resources for answers to questions concerning the justification of courses of action and as classical formulations of the nature of moral value and the logic of moral reasoning.
Prerequisite(s): Students must be enrolled in a Master�s program (at MUN or elsewhere) or have a Master�s completed and are working towards 7th grade.
