Ethical questions

Working on this project, I've come had to address several ethical questions. As a high school teacher, I'm legally responsible for the wellbeing of my students... A while ago, I took this picture of one of my students crying during a presentation by Chris Herren, former NBA star and addict in recovery. I think the image is powerful, and speaks to the human consequences of this disease. I debated whether or not to show the image, and ultimately sat down with the student, explaining my project, and asked her permission to use it. She understood its impact, and agreed without any hesitation to allow me to use it.
