By Michael G. Gunzenhauser
The Active/Ethical Professional proposes a moral framework for educators and college leaders who locate their perform restricted via the calls for of regulations and constructions created based on responsibility laws. The framework is derived from Michel Foucault’s theories of self-discipline, surveillance, resistance, and care of the self.
Gunzenhauser asserts that an educator’s twin place of being normalized (especially in kin with these above them within the schooling hierarchy) and normalizing (especially in relatives with their scholars) may be troubling and hard. The publication argues that this place calls for educators to be either “ethical” and “active.” To be moral, educators not just have to unravel moral dilemmas in defensible methods, yet in addition they have to realize themselves as strong on the subject of others. To be lively, educators have to be vigilant for moments after they are put within the place to be “reactive” to normalizing pressures, and so they have to increase transparent notions of ways they might create possibilities for the cultivation of academic selves – selves which are wealthy ethically, aesthetically, epistemologically, and politically.
