What Are Ethics? Ethics are a code of professional standards, containing aspects of fairness and duty to the profession and the general public. Ethical issues deal with questions of right and wrong. They concern what we SHOULD do; not what we want or need to do. Ethics do not ONLY deal with facts. Ethics ≠ Values (values are often personal and should not be forced on other people).

Ethical Quandaries in the Classroom It is the role of a professional to make complex ethical judgments when required, as part of their everyday work. You may be faced with ethical quandaries as a classroom teacher. For instance: You meet with a parent to discuss their child’s behavior. You observe the child showing signs of distress and fright, promising with tears not to do it again. The parent says, “We’ll make sure of that…” What do you do? A parent complains about another teacher, saying that neither that teacher nor the principal will act on his/her complaints. They request your advice on taking their concerns further. What do you do?

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
