Stefanie has an unfair advantage by having the percentiles changed from 95th to 97th percentile. Miles is facing a major ethical problem. This is a violation of the Florida code. Florida’s section 2A7 of the ethics code provides students protections based on family and social backgrounds. This is a violation of Florida’s rule of conduct. Section 2.B.3 prohibits an instructor from using institutional power for his or her own personal gain. 2.C.3 is the last section that was violated. It requires instructors to be honest. It is possible to give an unfair advantage for a student on the basis of his/her family history. This can be done by using the position of the teacher to gain an unfair advantage for a student and misrepresenting facts to the school. This meant that the instructor would have to supply accurate percentage data for the admissions panel. After the instructor has provided the data, the admissions committee will make a decision on whether to admit the student based upon a preponderance. This would give all students the same chance of getting the job.
Scenario 2 presents an ethical problem because a colleague can disclose their personal information to them without permission. Both the instructors communicated confidential information and it should be kept within the institution. Armstrong violates standard 1.C and norm 2.C. The teacher is violating standard 1.C, norm 2.C.5. Section C of norm 1 states that all colleagues within the institution must have the greatest regard for and trust one another. It is not intended that the harmful information be detrimental. Miss Long didn’t indicate how frequently she would skip lessons, so Mr. Armstrong’s information was inaccurate. It would be a good idea to ask Mrs. Long to meet with her substitute teacher in order to confirm that they are on the exact same page. Another option is to ask Mrs. Long for permission to reveal the information. This would be ethical and appropriate.
There are several ethical issues in this case that could lead to unethical conduct. First, Parker conceals important information about his pupils to enable them to access the club’s run club membership. This is a violation of clauses 2.B.2 & 2.A.4 in the Florida teachers’ code of ethics. This violates the criteria by creating a form of repression for students who want to pursue programs provided by the school in order to meet the student’s requirements. Ms. Olsen encourages unprofessional conduct, denying autistic children and other qualified pupils the opportunity to take part in the program.
