Abed, Mohaned Ghazi
Journal on Educational Psychology, v8 n3 p1-14 Nov 2014-Jan 2015
This paper has firstly discussed the topic of Ethical Issues in Education, and has accordingly highlighted the fact that ethics are not something to deem at the commencement of a research project or fieldwork, but rather throughout the entire research process. Furthermore, two of the most important ethical issues have been given consideration--Informed Consent and involvement of children in research. The first element is informed consent, which is concerned with the question of being part of the research process, whereby the result is an informed option concerning the voluntary contribution in a research. In addition, some of the different issues raised from it and alongside suggested ways of addressing them have been discussed. The second element is the involvement of children in research. Moreover, the significance of the ethical issues regarding the right of children in research participation in order to express and report their views and experiences in more detail with regard to parental consent and confidentiality has been stated.
