Private Life v Public Role

Description

Using an imaginary case study, moderator Mike Baker asks a panel whether teachers ought to follow higher moral personal standards than other professionals.

Should teachers set an example to their pupils in their personal lives over matters such as sexual fidelity? Is a teacher entitled to a murky past so long as it does not impinge on their current teaching? Should school managers intervene when a teacher's family encounters problems or is it none of their business?

The panel, which includes two secondary headteachers, a primary headteacher, a governor and a union official, wrestles with these dilemmas.

Part of the series: What If...?
