Possibly the most significant professional choice that teachers make
(consciously or unconsciously) relates to how they see their responsibilities
as people in authority. In this note, originally written for a University of
the Western Cape study guide, Professor Morrow tries to help teachers
understand this authority role.
In order to do so, he introduces a number of significant distinctions. Some
of the most important of these distinctions are those between power and
authority (that is, legitimate, democratic authority); between political
authority and educational authority; and between control and
discipline.
