Week 6- Teacher's ethics

What are the potential breaches of the teacher's code of ethics?
This is a list of a few in no particular order.
  • Having inappropriate relationships with students (sexual, business partnership, “after school buddies”, drinking binges, etc)
  • Violation of clearly stated school rules and educational procedures
  • Failing to perform duties (no teaching, chaos, wrong attitude toward the teaching profession, etc)
  • Imposing on students personal views unrelated to the subject of a lesson or promoting such, especially some that do not represent the main stream (extreme political or religious views, views on controversial social issues, interest of a particular social group, etc).
  • Improper grading, partiality, and lack of fairness (based on who is liked, who is not; race, past performance, background, etc)
  • Exposing students to embarrassment or disparagement (emotional or psychological harassment)
  • Invading students' privacy
  • Engaging students in unethical behavior
  • Accepting gifts and favors, quid pro quo (“for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the righteous")
  • Deceiving students and their parents.
