However, I am also aware that I have the ethical responsibility to protect the residents’ interest and to consider them when I am making any decisions. This reflects that there can be competing interests within a community. And as a CP, I need to ensure that different interests are included in my decision-making
By using a more complex approach such as case by case punishment students get a chance to save themselves from a bad record for situations that could not be avoided. Few would argue that instead of trying to handle the situation himself the student should have went to a teacher or administrator and he deserved his punishment. But the reality is problems like suicide require immediate action; most suicidal students would not go to an adult about those problems. If students have no wish to bring hurt, harm, or danger to those in the school building then a lesser punishment or none at all is the best
They believe that such processes invade the personal space of developing and insecure students, which lessens the trust between the students and their educational environment. Nevertheless, personal space is an intrusion into someone’s personal affair regarding their ownership. Lockers are branded as school property, which means the "space" certain individuals claim is a factor against the action is nonexistent. Students are in no way obligated to store personal or shameful materials in their lockers, and if schools imply locker searches at the beginning of the school year, students
In conclusion censorship should not be applied when it comes to history. History is objective so the sources for education about history should also be unbiased. At the very least there will be teachers who will find the truth outside the textbooks and teach their students those
Moreover, categorical imperative is a formal principle that provides a framework for deriving moral maxims, such as ‘honor your parents’, ‘do not steal’ or ‘do not lie’. However, there is another class of philosophers called rule deontologists who differ from Kant in denying that moral rules can be deduced from higher principle. These rule deontologists believe that rules must be known directly by intuition. David Ross, the chief proponent of view, argued that people are morally bound to
Although Ayn Rand constructs persuasive points for the ethics of emergencies, the central principle of morality that states to follow one’s own ranking of values is flawed and therefore his argument for emergencies must be rejected. Rand considers objectivism to be the truth because even though it can be hard to justify that selfishness could be morally right, she supports her stance by stating it is every person’s responsibility to care for their own life. If people do not care for their own life, and lets their lives fall into chaos, then it is nobody’s fault but their own, and no one is morally obligated to feel bad for them. Rand then attempts to explain the main issue of explaining how to deal with circumstances where certainly any
As a teacher, it is without doubt crucial to act according to moral principle, which stems from reasoning and not from experience, so that learners will be able to distinguish right from wrong (Johnson & Cureton, 2016). One should not consider it to be less important but it is better for virtues to be demonstrated so that a foundation is formed to act according to moral principle. However a cycle is formed where teachers’ exhibit virtues so that they are ‘caught’ then ‘taught’ before/while acting according to moral principle (Jubilee
Gress’s position is not morally legitimate, and the ethical principles of nonmaleficence, beneficence, and autonomy render it morally wrong. Paternalism is strongly present in this situation: the patients were not asked whether or not they would like to be informed of the new information that their doctor acquired. Furthermore, Dr. Gress stated that he had “an obligation not to notify them” (Munson 328); however, doctors have a duty to tell even the unfortunate truths to their patients. What Dr. Gress decided was, “on the basis of his own values, that he knows what is best for another person” (Week 2 Ppt Slide 2). Also, he was denying the patients’ autonomy.
The first one would be giving serious attention in assessing and articulate our own values. Knowing what is your own stand and principles are the points which Gioia wish to bring out in the context. People should consciously decide what is his own values and if his doesn’t then it is inevitable that people would be likely to decide for them and influence him to accept the culture.
People have to act accordingly to their obligations regardless of the positive or negative outcome of their actions. According to deontologists, it is wrong to kill, to steal, to lie, and it is right to keep promises and to help people. One should not lie about anything even though that lie could save a lot of lives. In addition, one should not perform a prohibited action even though it could bring uncountable benefits to society (Kant’s Deontological ethics). Deontology is the opposite of consequentialism.
Sometimes it is best to understand the law first before obeying it. When one thinks a law is unjust, they will go out of their way to go against it and do something about it. At a certain point, one doesn’t have to act accordingly to what they don’t believe in, but they can’t do whatever pleases them. There has been many controversies involving the act of non violence civil disobedience. Although most feel like breaking an unjust law might be the best solution to what they think is right, in reality, I agree to the fact that people are afraid to face the consequences that are given after their actions.
Thus causing suspicion from the professor or anyone else if the cheating did happened (Source B). Even if that’s so, having them set in place would “create tension and that a subsequent report could not easily be kept confidential…” (Source B). Students
In order, to improve rightness one can must rely on the cultivation through education in favorable environments. However, in bad environmental conditions human will is corrupted. But, this does not prove that human nature is evil, people generally do not want to cause harm to
An important lesson he learned is that sometimes as a leader you have to be frank and bold enough to speak the truth. You must be willing to stand and make amendments where necessary for the benefit of the school and its students and teachers. You must also be wise enough not to ruin the reputation of the individual by divulging too much information, even if it may cause others to look at you as the bad guy. Mr P concluded by saying that he does not seek to condemn people, but at the same time will not allow a matter or person to affect the entire school.
This is what I think this means and what it is for. What I think this means if a way you can put your dilemmas into the test, seeing which way is the good way. For example, if the way we chose if not the best way to go or the truth, we should not take the way as it may give us a hard time. Also, if we want friends, we may want to go for what everyone expect us to do, even if it is bad, this test will help us not do it because it is not beneficial to everyone.
