From the Paper:

"Within any professional field, a code of conduct is necessary to guarantee the quality of the service or product delivered. When it comes to industries which deal with those individuals in need of help, whether it be health or knowledge oriented, must take particular care to the means through which they achieve their ends, as development and at times life is at stake. In the educational field a code of ethical conduct is absolutely essential, as educators are dealing with the minds and knowledge of students, oftentimes children, and thereby must take particular care in their professional conduct. An educator is obligated to strive towards helping their students realize their potential while assisting them in becoming an effective member of society. (NEA) The Code of Ethics of the Education Profession as presented by the National Education Association, in particular Principle I, provides a valuable outline of these concepts, although given the significance of the issue, is accompanied by a great deal of other literature."
