Avilla 1 Ross Avilla Dr. Chris Nagel Philosophy 4401 January 27, 2005 Response to Macmillan’s “Ethics and Teach Professionalization” The main reason teachers want some kind of SEC, some kind of organization made up of teachers to both provide the ethics to guide themselves and the power to regulate their own behavior, is just to give them autonomy over the state. It does make sense that if teachers follow suit with other professions and open up their own formal system of self-restraint it will sort of be an extra guarantee to the public that teachers will be held ethically accountable and I think the public would get that and increase the amount of trust it would be willing to lend to teachers as a whole. I don’t think, however, that that would necessarily lead to the kind of professional autonomy that teachers want. For one, teachers just are not looked by the public at as professionals like doctors and lawyers are and I don’t really think they ever will be.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
