Abstract: The New Century Dictionary defines the word "charity": "good will to others; leniency in judging others or their actions.” If "Charity", as applied in school relationships, could be broadened to include "sympathetic understanding", much of the friction which has been growing up between principals and teachers, during the past few years, would cease to be. Friction among individuals, groups, or even organizations, is largely an outgrowth of a lack of understanding. If principals and teachers each understood the others’ problems, if they recognized the desire for appreciation of a task well done, if they could envision the ambitions of their co-workers, the teaching profession would make great strides towards living up to the ideals set forth in its codes of ethics.
