By Michael G. Gunzenhauser

The Active/Ethical Professional proposes a moral framework for educators and faculty leaders who locate their perform limited via the calls for of regulations and constructions created in accordance with 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 relatives with these above them within the schooling hierarchy) and normalizing (especially in relatives with their scholars) may be troubling and hard. The e-book 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 additionally they have to realize themselves as robust with regards to others.  To be energetic, educators have to be vigilant for moments once they are put within the place to be “reactive” to normalizing pressures, and so they have to advance transparent notions of the way they might create possibilities for the cultivation of academic selves – selves which are wealthy ethically, aesthetically, epistemologically, and politically.
