ethical teaching

… it is teaching that is powerful, not teachers; the miracle comes from what teachers and students do together. Teachers who try to change students are imposing themselves on students, thus limiting students to what the teachers can themselves imagine. Ethical teaching … is about opening up students, ensuring they do their best of educing—drawing out—students must find their own ways. Teachers can accompany them but not do the learning or the living on their behalf.
