  1. Why do you think ethical behavior standards and legal responsibilities related to education are important?


    Our ethical stance will govern how we instruct and assess students. Ethics also will play a role in how we interact with students, with colleagues, with administrators and with the community. Because of this we as teachers must act in our private lives in a way that does not undermine our efficacy in the classroom, demean the school we teach at or damage our position as a moral exemplars in the community.

  2. As teachers, we are role models for students and other teachers. To be excellent role models, we need to do a lot but a big part of that is to show the students how to stick to your own morals and ethics and not letting other people control how you think. Also, teachers can show students how to respect rules by setting them and sticking to them throughout the year. It's important for everyone to have their own code of ethics.Teachers should use their code of ethics to influence good qualities of them onto the students.

    Ethical behavior standards and legal responsibilities related to education are important because teachers are always with students and they have one of the biggest impacts on students as people. Teachers' roles should be clearly outlined so that the impact they have on students is for the better. By following the rules and being ethical teachers also set a good example for their students showing them how important it is to be ethical and that rules are there for a reason.

    Ethical behavior standards and legal responsibilities related to education are important because they help us to set a clear boundary what we are to students. It helps us to know what to do in certain situations and how we can assist. It also helps because we are able to communicate better and be good role models for the students. After all students look up to teachers and teachers have to have a strong code of ethics for the student to look up too.

  6. Ethical behavior and legal responsibilities are important in education because part of your job as a teacher is to be a role model for your students. Students spend a lot of time in the classroom when growing up, and there is a lot to be learned about life while in school. Teachers having good ethics and being responsible shows students how they should act and be outside of school as well. Teachers should show students that they should follow the rules and be responsible and respectful, and the students should be able to look up to their teachers.

  9. As a teacher, ethical behavior and legal responsibilities helps to create a classroom with a good learning environment. Students spend a good portion of time in the classroom, so it is important that the teacher is a good role model. Teachers should encourage good behavior that will help them in both the present and future. Good behavior comes as a result of watching the teacher, also, following the same rules as the students. The ethical behavior demonstrated by the teacher should portray positive morals that the students can learn from. Incorporating these ethics and morals are extremely important to the development of the students in the classroom.

  10. In education, it is important to have ethics in place and also keep legal responsibilities in mind. This makes way for a safe and comfortable environment for you as a teacher and your students. If ethics are in place, then students will respect each other and you, the energy of the classroom will be happier and everyone can rely on each other. However, as a teacher you are obviously in the work force, so you cannot be too comfortable with anything because it could lead to serious lawsuits or losing your job.

  11. Both ethical behavior standards and legal responsibilities related to education are important because when working with kids who are in different situations in life, educators must be aware of the legal aspects of working with the child, as well as what is ethically and morally right. For some students, their teacher might be the only real role model in their life, so they should make sure to always show that they respect and follow the law, as well as always try to do what is ethically right for his/her classroom and students. Also, it's important for teachers to follow the law when it comes to issues/situations at the school because from the legal standpoint they could get fired, while also having ethical standards so students and their fellow teachers respect him/her as someone who always does their best to do what's right.

    Ethics in the classroom in extremely important because it could make or break a child's education. If something unethical happens in a classroom a child could quickly shut down because they know something is wrong. It is also important because it gives all students a fair chance and no one student a leg up or aid. Other students know when things like this happen and will start to feel inferior and not want to work as hard.

    Ethics in a class is important because it determines how the class will be ran. If you don't have a guid line for what could happen in your class, then its going be cauatic which can make the class a difficult place to learn for a child, hindering their education. Also its could for them to know whats acceptable in the classroom environment at a young age so its instilled in them as they grow in their education.

    Ethical behavior standards and legal responsibilities when it comes to education are important, because it is crucial to be consistent and set guidelines in a classroom. Ethical standards help the teacher play the role model in a students life, because kids need that when growing up. Holding teachers to ethical standards and legal responsibilities makes them liable for taking care of themselves and setting a standard at all times. When students are help to standards it sets achievable goals which lead to success.

    I believe that ethical behavior and legal responsibilities are related to education because teachers are always with students and they have one of the biggest impacts and I say this because when we are role models for students and other teachers, it impacts them. It is not easy to be a role model but we need to do a lot but a biggest part is to show the students how to stick to your own morals and ethics by not letting other people control how you think. Not only that but teachers can show students how to respect rules by setting them and sticking to them throughout the year. It's important for everyone to have their own code of ethics. Teachers should use their code of ethics to influence good qualities of them onto the students.

    As teachers we have a responsibility to be role model to our peers and our students. If we do not follow a very strict ethic code then all teachers would be able to make up their own and the students as well as peers would never have a clear image of what it means to be ethical. All teachers need to be able to show good qualities that will help the students and teachers later on when they are faced with big decisions.

    Teachers are oftentimes seen as role models, and therefore should always do their best to act ethically. Everyday, teachers interact with students who will likely mimic their behavior. Ideally, the behavior is appropriate and ethical. Legal responsibilities are important because they provide guidelines for when the ethical and unethical line becomes blurry. People are more likely to obey the legal responsibilities as they do come with serious consequences. Either way, teachers should always act ethically, as they do influence other people daily.

  22. Ethical behavior standards and legal responsibilities related to education are important because as teachers we are the example and influence outside of their own home and teaching them positive behaviors and ways to interact in situations is important as they move up in life and we can provide those morals and responsibilities but also encourage them to be their own person and pick what is wrong or right.

  23. Legal responsibilities related to education are important because you could get fired or in trouble for doing certain things. Every good educator should be informed about all the legal responsibilities so they not only can be a good teacher, but not get in trouble. Having your own ethical responsibilities is important so you can establish self control. Good educators should place boundaries with students so they can respect themselves and know their own limits, regardless of the law.
