Principles and Ethics for Elementary and Junior High School Teachers
Howard, Kiffany
Online Submission
The rules and principles approach for developing educators' ethical judgment may be less effective than a centered approach. A centered approach being one that focuses solely on the elementary and junior high teachers. Educators understand the moral and ethical convolution of their role; possess expertise in interpreting their behavior and penetrating its influence on students, and act ethically within the context of professional responsibility. It's importance of programs focusing on addressing the ethics. "Ethics are rules of conduct that are recognized in recognized in respect to a particular class" (Webster online, 2009). As ethics are rules of conduct the principles are the acceptance of the ethics. When developing educators; we must know that the educator will in return be recognized as a leader. They are leaders amongst students, in the schools and most importantly a leader working for Christ. What are leaders for Christ? What do they look like and/or what traits do they posses? The focus of this paper will identify professional principles and ethics for teachers that are mandated by Christ.
