Values of the Institutions
Human values are the yardsticks that help people understand the purpose and goal of life. Education built on a firm value system gives the pillaring support for the holistic development of an individual. The following are the values that our institution has complete belief and faith in: Respect, Integrity and Purity.
Respect is the esteem or sense of worth or excellence of a person. One who respects oneself also respects others. This is a basic virtue required to nurture friendship, team work and productivity. It conveys a sense of admiration for good or valuable qualities. Respect for others, elders, accepting people as they are irrespective of the differences in terms of gender, caste, creed, colour, religion, etc. always promote goodwill and growth. Respect for the country is essential in being a socially and morally upright citizen.
Integrity is the practice of being honest and showing a consistent and uncompromising devotion to strong moral and ethical principles and values. An individual must therefore be honorable and willing to adhere to these values. They should also be consistent and courageous when these values are challenged. Integrity is revealed when people act virtuously regardless of circumstances or consequences. A person of integrity will consistently demonstrate good character by being free of corruption and hypocrisy.
Purity is the state of being clean or free from anything which does harm. It is not confined to outward appearance alone, but also refers to the purity in head, heart and soul. The level of refinement, clarity of thoughts and untainted intentions fosters the betterment of spiritual growth in an individual. When pure thoughts and deeds go hand in hand the prosperity of the society cannot be far away.
Professional Ethics for Teaching Profession
A code of ethics for educators always addresses issues such as fairness and confidentiality. Teachers may not discriminate against students for any reason, and they must not share information about the student with anyone other than college professionals who need the information to assist the student. Teachers are expected to provide a physically and emotionally safe learning environment for students.
Teachers must always deal with parents in a professional manner. The National Association of Special Education Teachers’ Code of Ethics states that teachers should work to collaborate with parents and build an atmosphere of trust. Teachers must also never allow themselves to treat a student differently based on the student’s parents’ position in the community. It is generally considered to be unethical for teachers to accept costly gifts from parents.
Teachers’ code of ethics often addresses a teacher’s relationship with her colleagues. Teachers are expected to treat colleagues fairly and to encourage one another to adhere to high professional standards.
Ethics require that a teacher work to maintain a high personal standard of professionalism. The code of ethics developed by the National Education Association warns teachers not to misrepresent their professional qualifications. Ethics also dictate that teachers not misappropriate college funds or equipment for personal use. Teachers may also consider professional development necessary from an ethical stance, as it can help them to serve better the students in their charge.
