Thinking and Doing Ethics 12 July 2020 Written Case Analysis 2 Case Study 4 "An English teacher in a two-year technical college has several students in his composition course whose ignorance of the English language has proved invincible. He has given them extra work and extra counseling from the first week of the semester. They have been diligent in their efforts to improve. Though they are in a construction technology program and will undoubtedly be employed in jobs that require little writing skill, the composition course is required for graduation. In the instructor’s judgment, the students would not be able to pass the course legitimately if they took it three times, so he raises their F grades to Ds." In this case study, it goes into detail how an English teacher tries to teach a composition course to several individuals with difficulty with the English language. However, the teacher deems it impossible for them to ever pass the class on their own, so she raises their grades from a F to D’s. I believe this teacher is doing an unjust moral act and will use the act of utilitarianism to justify my conclusion.
