What is educational ethics?Today we want to acquaint readers with article L. Ron Hubbard “ EDUCATIONAL ETHICS “. Who knows, perhaps, in anticipation of New 2011 it will awaken in you new creative ideas which life - the will be possible to realize and make in the future year and - it is a little better than people around. Better to understand the ideas stated in article, we will address a word meaning “ ethics “.
Ethics: the principles or beliefs concerning the correct and wrong behavior and defining behavior of this or that group of people.
Let`s classify knowledge for a start. The person actually is interested only those things which influence his survival, - data which he can apply and which really yield results. Than this is stronger its application in the direction of a survival or against it influences a survival of the person or the more, the this this is more valuable. In other words, those things which interfere or promote, or somehow influence a survival, become very important data.
The huge number of efforts is applied in education to train pupils to remember information. It was impossible to choose more incorrect way in education.
What you want to reach within education, so it to teach the person to acquire, use and develop knowledge. Or to get, use, develop and impart knowledge. Actually it is all steps which are here. It is what you have to do if you want to educate someone.
Therefore it is necessary to clean any tinsel which creates obstacles in some of these directions from educational system.
The following that needs to be considered, is such question: how there is information transfer? When it is about education, we from beginning to end deal with a communication problem. It is impossible to transfer to people data which they are collected to use, at any level where the parity of levels is not observed.
Parity : equality of situation or status.
How most of people get an education? They get an education as a result of teaching from a position of the power and the authority: the pupil looks at the teacher from below up. The teacher says that he knows information, says that it has value, says that it needs to be remembered, says that you have to make some calculations on the basis of this information - those calculations which to you will specify.
There is one thing for which it is necessary to care carefully in the course of training of the person: he needs to allow to think. It can be trained in the bases of a subject if this main, key information is really known . And after that it is really possible to teach to obtain it any information on this subject which is required to it in the future. To teach to get this information. And also he should be taught that he acquires the right to use this information, to think of it, to come to new conclusions on the basis of this information, and he acquires the right further to develop it and to use during the survival. In only case when it is possible to call the person well educated when properly took care of all this.
But how many exists fields of activity - especially it concerns humanitarian branches of knowledge, - in which how all and everywhere was believed, the basic principles are known? Said to people that these principles are known while they remain not known.
Humanitarian : belonging to the humanities, that is sections of knowledge which are devoted to human thought and relationship of people; first of all, carry literature, philosophy, history to them, it is frequent - the fine arts etc.
I are one more moment which is very important in education: what is definitely not known, needs to be marked accurately per se in the course of education. If in a subject there is no exact knowledge, then it is necessary and to teach it per se. It is necessary to tell pupils that we teach it as something, not known for certain.
And suddenly will reach it as it is applicable in the real world. “ Here what we know about it, and the fact that we know about it, is not known for certain “. And after that he can begin to study really a subject for the purpose of application.
It will be educational honesty, and it has to be part of educational ethics. All these moments which are emphasized as desirable together make educational ethics. It is amazing that now there are no educational ethics.
In what responsibility of the teacher and educational institution to the person getting an education consists? It has to be clear that the central figure in educational institution is the one who gets an education, and the one who provides it.
Now we will consider such question as weakening of a factor of the power of the teacher, - that the person did not feel that he is forced to accept data because someone told it it to make . It accepts data if they seem to it logical . If it can compare these data with the real world if he knows about them if they allow it to to think clearer or if the situation becomes better thanks to them, then it accepts them. But nothing can be imposed to the pupil, nothing. Moreover, if he misunderstands something or there is something similar, clear it with him, do not punish him for the fact that he misunderstands something. In other words, do not snatch on it if he gave the incorrect answer, try to help it that it came to the right answer. It is perfect another matter. It is the complete antithesis to the existing examination system, so?
Educational ethics also have to promote full providing that nothing interferes with ability of the person to work and increase efficiency of the actions by means of information provided to it, and are used reasonable efforts to help it with it. To arrive otherwise would mean seriously to threaten its survival.
So, there is such thing as educational ethics, and it needs to be described, made known and to put into practice. Thanks to use of educational ethics you will probably be able to increase the general level of understanding at the whole nation during life of two generations to such level of which earlier nobody dreamed.
What is called education today practically does not contain ethics. The person is allowed to come and study. While it does it, treat him tolerantly. It is given information, examine him to check whether he knows information, and then when all are sure that in his memory some part of this information remained, they with feeling of the fulfilled duty shake off the hands and solemnly declare achievement of the great purpose.
But it it is necessary to do not so.
