  Case: R rated video during class time
Your students have worked hard preparing for an exam, and they are asking that you reward them by showing an unapproved R rated video during class time. One of the students rents the movie and brings it to class. Previously, you had seen the movie and you think it is ok. Were any ethics principles violated?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
Yes. Schools have rules that prohibit the viewing of R rated movies in the classroom. A teacher cannot make the determination that it is okay to watch just because they have seen it before.

Comments: I agree, many morals are different among people. It is therefore inappropriate for the teacher to think they can make such a decision without further approval.

Comments: If I were in this situation, I would exactly do this. The teacher has no right to show a R rated movie in class.
