Other People's Kids

In their training, doctors and lawyers invest substantial amounts of time learning about the history, philosophy and ethics of their profession. Unfortunately, these three concepts are often ignored in the training of educators. If Special Education is to be viewed as a significant and valid profession, practitioners must come to understand and embrace the ETHICAL tenets that under gird our daily work.

This seminar will emphasize the concept that a certain behavior may be MORALLY acceptable (e.g., borrowing money from a neighbor), but ETHICALLY unacceptable (if the neighbor is a parent of a child in your class). This seminar has been extremely well received by teachers and administrators throughout the country.

Objectives:

  • The learner will be exposed to the ethical responsibilities that a teacher has to her students.
  • The learner will be exposed to the ethical responsibilities that a teacher has to her colleagues.
