CODE OF ETHICS FOR THE EDUCATION PROFESSION
The Code of Ethics of the Education Profession, as specified by the National Education Association, recognizes the supreme importance of the pursuit of truth, devotion to excellence and the nurture of democratic principles (NEA, 1975). In light of these principles and as future educators, SJC students are expected to make ethical decisions when it comes to their professional behavior. The Department of Child Study requires all students to exhibit quality dispositions and “demonstrate professional ethics including honesty and trustworthiness,” (National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education, 2002). Therefore, the Department of Child Study would like to emphasize that any student who deliberately makes false statements will face consequences that will include failing the course and/or possibly being asked to leave the department.
