Ethics vs Morality
Let us read these statements to understand the difference between morality and ethics in proper context;
- If a teacher is irregular in his duty (i.e. not completing syllabus), s/he may be considered unethical but we cannot call him 'immoral'.
- If a teacher is physically exploiting students, s/he may be considered immoral as well as unethical.
- If a teacher supports students agitating against management, it may be considered morally righteous but unethical.
- If a teacher is doing administration work at the cost of teaching, s/he may be considered morally right but unethical.
- If a teacher is forced to do admin work instead of teaching, it is unethical but it may not be considered immoral
- The Lawyer telling court that his/her client is guilty is morally right but ethically it violets attorney-client privilege.
- Regular full time teachers - doing private tuitions = Unethical or Immoral?
- Teacher asking for money to pass students = Unethical or Immoral?
- If we cannot take exams without invigilator, how can we say that our education system deals with morality and ethics in a proper way?
