Applied Ethics Case

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.

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

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
