Ethics in education, students often know the right thing to do and how can schools help them accomplish their goals. A student will play follow the leader and not think for themselves. A student, who exhibits academic ethics, demonstrates character in terms of integrity, self-confidence and self-discipline. Many students due to peer pressure and extracurricular activities never learn self-discipline and therefore are not successful in college.
Ethics is the “discipline of dealing with what is good and bad with moral duty and obligation”. Ethics should be taught on a basis of critical thinking approach, with teachers contribute their own concerns, experiences and creativity in ethics.
Integrity is a large part of ethics in education. Integrity is “a firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values”. Integrity is the core of all functioning societies; members expect leaders to be honest and trustworthy. Without trust in the relationship, they do not have the free exchange of thoughts, open debate and democratic action regarding the teaching of ethics. Academic integrity is a mutual responsibility, between the teachers and students. If the teacher does not have integrity, they might be searching for other employment opportunities. Academic integrity is supposed to operate in a scholarly manner with open, honest and a responsible manner. When you do not have that, you have cheating, acts of deception, falsification and misrepresentation, and plagiarism. Access to the internet gives students some information, which is not ethically acceptable. Students can also get on to the internet and get which is a breach of integrity. Integrity is important with citizenship, gratitude, fairness and courage, and these characteristics are essential to integrity.
Self-confidence is “confidence in oneself and in one’s power and abilities”. There are three pillars of self-confidence. First you must be willing to educate yourself, read a lot of books, and ask experts. The second pillar of self-confidence is experience through action. By taking action will bring you the confidence that you need. Many negative life experiences can erode a person’s self-confidence. When failure does happen, you will learn from your experiences. Accepting failure is the most important aspect of gaining self-confidence. A person with self-confidence needs to be comfortable with failure. The third pillar of self-confidence is faith. It is an ingredient that will take you to higher levels, than you ever imagined. If you do not take action you will not...
...When determining the status of morality there is three different options. Morality may be the different between objectives, relativistic, or it may be a complex set of rules. Moral nihilists are like relativists by denying ethical objectivism however, relativists believe in moral goodness, duty and virtue and nihilists don’t. Error theorists and expressivism are both forms of moral nihilism. Error theorists believe “our moral judgments are always mistaken”. Expressivists don’t agree and also deny that our moral claims can ever offer an accurate take on reality. (307)
Error theory and expressivism are two forms of moral nihilism. Error theorists believe “our moral judgments are always mistaken”. (307) While expressivists deny those beliefs and deny, “that our moral claims can never offer an accurate take on reality”. (307) The error theory is made of three doubts/claims.
The first is “there are no moral features in this world”. Error theorists believe that nothing is morally good or bad, or right and wrong. Exemplified in the book many scientific qualities in the world (liquids, being three feet long, carbon based chemicals) but none of them contain moral features. The next doubt of error theorists is no moral judgments are true. There are no moral facts so certain statements made cannot be true. The third corresponds to the second doubt, “our sincere moral judgments try, but always fail, to describe the moral features of things”. Since there are no moral truths for...
Boxing is a violent sport full of hate where the only objective is to knock your opponent unconscious. This is a very quick and biased view of boxing because if you study boxing closer it helps teach the person about their moral character. Boxing helps teach people to “get off the canvas and roll with the punches” (Marino, 2010, para 8) and to face their fears, two important lessons to get through life. Throughout the article written by Marino, he educates about Aristotelian ethics and uses boxing as a real-life example. I believe that Marino’s invocation of Aristotelian ethics is well articulated, and I agree with his application through boxing relating it to your life. Aristotelian ethics and boxing can relate to the rights and responsibility lens; boxing can help develop our moral lives and can clearly define and educate people about Aristotle’s definition of courage.
The sport of boxing and comparing it to real-life morals and virtues is extremely well done by Gordon Marino using Aristotelian ethics. The moral virtues that Aristotle preached such as “qualities, temperance, justice, pride, and truthfulness” (Marino, 2010, para. 11) all can be directly applied to Kantian ethics and the rights/responsibility lens (DesJardins, 2012). Boxing is a man versus man, woman versus woman sport which “can compel a person to take a quick self-inventory...

...dog is aggressive because terrible things do happen. I have a german shepherd that is never off the leash unless inside the dog park fence. Cleaning up after the animal is also our responsibility because diseases can be spread through an animal’s waste. That is also something I have confronted tenants about and reported them for.
Krishna’s advice is all about standing by your upbringing. I take it to mean that you must always follow your path regardless of the outcome or consequences. Therefore, Arjuna is a warrior at war, because of this he must always fight when directed to fight regardless of the consequences. I’m not completely sure how you compare or relate Krishna’s advice to care ethics because to me care ethics is not shown even in the slightest by Krishna.
For me to say I would definitely fight the war would be wrong. For me to say that I would definitely withdraw would be wrong. Frankly, I have no clue how I would act or what I would do on the battlefield. I have been deployed and stationed in warzones but I had no relations or ties to the people we are at war with. Arjuna has friends and family standing on the same battlefield that may die during this conflict. This is not a factor I had to consider when being deployed. So, for me to say that I would fight or would not fight is not an answer I can straight up provide because I have never and will probably never be faced with that situation....

Utilitarianism ethics accentuates that the activity that should be ethically beneficial to the group. In further terms, the outcome of any moral activity ought to be valuable for all by mass offer. This is a universal fundamental theme for ethics in industrialist economies and business as well as in all governments.
Virtue Theory is also known as virtue ethics focal point on the person’s character as opposed to the standards and outcomes of the particular acts. This fundamentally means that the prime focus is endured or not to the person who acting ethically is a person who upholds the high virtues and morals, in expressing the good character in people., plan, results and conclusion are not so much immaterial; nonetheless, the significance of virtue theory is first and foremost.
Dissimilar to virtue theory, deontology has a substantial accentuation on obligation in activity, in adherence to runs the show. The right activity is essential here, whereupon fruition, ought to achieve the best useful for all included. This is to some degree like utilitarianism, which does concentrate on the result of the best great. Be that as it may, deontology does not incline toward the result itself, yet all the more so the guideline behind submitting the right activity. The moral behind deontology is about...
