ABSTRACT
The article considers the attitude that should be adopted by a teacher when handling controversial issues in the classroom. According to the author, the chief function of the teacher in this process is to teach. The teacher is there to help students gather their facts, guide them to sources of information and inspiration and condemn the superficial and commend the well-considered. Most of all, a teacher should try to get students to do their own thinking, evaluate their own ideas and to formulate and express them, particularly during discussions of sensitive issues.
