TEACHERS’ PROFESSIONAL CODE OF ETHICS IN NIGERIAN SECONDARY SCHOOLS: ISSUES AND CHALLENGES
This paper examines the teachers’ professional code of ethics and the challenges facing its implementation in Nigerian secondary schools. It highlights the roles of teacher training institutions ill fostering the knowledge and practice of the ethical code. Poor training of teachers, poor facilities in secondary schools, teachers’ ignorance of the content of the code and corruption in the society are identified as problems militating against the knowledge and practice of the code. High-level of commitment on the part of teacher-trainers, provision of adequate facilities into schools, making the code one of the statutory records to be kept in schools and getting rid of corruption in the society are recommended as ways of making the implementation of the code effective.
