Content Analysis and Taxonomy of Selected Codes of Ethics in Educational Administration.
Klimes, Rudolph E.
The purpose of this study was to develop a content analysis and a taxonomy of codes of ethics in educational administration. In order to establish a statistical basis for the proposed taxonomy, a content analysis of ten codes of ethics in educational administration was undertaken. The final process was the formulation of a five-category taxonomy of code of ethics components. The categories are supporting, pursuing (development), controlling, communicating, and avoiding. It is concluded that codes of ethics in educational administration have sufficient common elements to make the formulation of a taxonomy possible, are generally much shorter than codes of ethics in other professions, generally provide no vehicle for enforcement, are designed to provide a general direction rather than specific guidance, have been reviewed in the period 1973-76, center in the main on general professional regulations rather than on ethical issues, and generally provide for the whole range of activities and functions of the profession.
