Education ethics contribute to the efficiency of the education system. It establishes appropriate standards and defends the interests of both the tutor and the student. Teachers have the power to shape students’ personalities and act as mentors to them, influencing their behavior and personal growth.

According to Weinstein (Weinstein, 2017), there are five basic principles of ethics, common to all faiths and disciples;

Do not harm: try not to hurt others with your actions.
Make things better: helping people and knowing the difference between helping and hurting, acting as a community wherever you stand.
Respect others: always speak the truth and keep your promises, if someone trusts you with information keep it to yourself but report the wrongdoings.
Be fair: keep a balance on your emotions and do not punish people unnecessarily.
Be loving: compassion for others, show that you care.
These principles may be defined differently around the world, but they are universal. Everyone around us is looking for ethical principles to put into practice. The laws and regulations that govern always doing the right thing are the foundation of the profession of education. Educating people to adopt moral behavior, refrain from deception, and respect others’ rights.
