Student Rights

NEA Guidlines

My next point almost fits in one of the NEA guidelines. I think teachers should eccourage debate but refrain from voicing opinions on controversial topics. Students are sponges and respect their teachers. They may adopt a teacher's viewpoint instead of creating one for theirselves.

While the NEA has their guidelines for ethics in a classroom setting, I have some, as well. I believe students are entitled to a proper education. In the classroom, I have noticed so much abuse of technology or students taking shortcuts to learning. I think students should be taught how to learn with and without technology. I think they have a right to know how to learn without internet access and with internet access.

Personal Guidlines

Other's Guidelines

I think the NEA has a point with nondiscrimination, but I think this should be taken further to protect every individual. Teachers should make every student feel like a valued member of the school community. Teachers should make sure to treat students that participate in school activities the same as students who do not. This is a big issue in school. When students see some students are favored, they tend to regard school differently.

The NEA gives certain guidlines to teachers and educators for establishing a legal and respectful way to treat a student in the classroom. The NEA (2015) does not want teachers to keep a student from learning on their own.

The NEA does not want teachers to change information and hinder learning. Students need to be able to have all the facts in order to make their own valid conclusions.

In 2012, Steven Mintz wrote a blog about bullying. In the blog, he talks about how prevailant bullying is in the classroom. He suggests schools and teachers crack down on bullying with "tough" policies. While this idea does fall under the NEA code of ethics, it is worth mentioning that bullying may need specific attention when forming ethical guidelines in a school. Our students need us to keep them safe.

Another ethical concern the Association of American Educatiors mentions is the right for parents to know all pertinent information. Parents trust educators with their students well-being and deserve to know what is happening with their kids. While this may not seem like a committment to the student, it is. If parents are informed of where a student is at in education, the parents can help further the education of the student.

The Association of American Educators (2015) adds another aspect to ethical considerations. They say teachers must deal with all matters of discpline in a safe and legal way. This is definitely important to students. They have a right to an education that is safe.

According to the NEA, the students require diversity in information shared. A teacher must allow a student to have multiple sources and varying points of view.

The NEA wants teachers to make the classroom environment safe. Students should be able to come in the classroom and have an optimal learning environment.

The NEA discourages embarrassment in the classroom. Students are learning and do not need to feel bad about theirselves or their education. Also, teachers should not discriminate. Everyone should be treated equally. This is important with today's society. Sexual orientation and race are two big topics on the news. All students should feel welcome in a classroom. .

According to the NEA, teachers should not be able to profit from their students or give away information not needed. Giving away information violates privacy and is illegal some cases.
