Ethical leaders and professional code of ethics to promote ethical standards – A global concern


Dr. Mitali Panda, Ranita Banerjee

Ethics basically is a science of discrimination between the right and the wrong. In our present society, there is violence, injustice, oppression and we witness more broken communities in our midst. The educator accepts the responsibility to adhere to the highest ethical standards. As Teachers, individuals and as representatives of communities, we have a great responsibility of healing these broken communities devoid of slowly disappearing human values, through reconciliation, peace, love, justice. The educator recognizes the magnitude of the responsibility inherent in the teaching process. The desire for the respect and confidence of one's colleagues, of students, of parents, and of the members of the community provides the incentive to attain and maintain the highest possible degree of ethical conduct. The Ethical Standards for the Teaching Profession represent a vision of professional practice. In pursuance of the recommendations of the National Policy on Education (NPE), 1986/1992, the (NCERT), the UGC, had developed, for the first time, a Code of Professional Ethics for Teachers. It is universally felt that like all other professions, the teaching profession should also have its own Code of Professional Ethics which indeed is a pre-requisite to ensure its dignity and integrity.
