Accordingto the Florida Code of Ethics and the Principles of ProfessionalConduct, the main concern for teachers is to develop the potential ofstudents and be there for them. Therefore, every student has a rightto study and learn in an environment with an equal treatment andattention. I believe this right extends to create a responsibilityfor teachers to respect the dignity of every students and treat theequally and fairly. This responsibility is stated in the Florida Codeof Ethics and the Principles of Professional Conduct of the EducationProfession of Florida, code 6A-10.080 (FLDOE,2015).This code states that educators should value and uphold the dignityof every student (FLDOE,2015).In this case, the two teachers should observe the code by givingattention to all students including Tyrone.Theteachers adhered to article 3 of code 6A-10.081 by protecting Tyronefrom a situation that would hurt his learning. They did this bypracticing such prudence requires objective understanding of theneeds of Tyrone and other students. The two teachers took time torecognize the problems facing Tyrone in the class. This teaches usthat a teacher should take time to understand the differences thatall students have and how they affect the class work. The process ofteaching-learning depends on the efforts of the teacher towards eachstudent (Bryant et al, 2008). The same process however, depends onthe personal abilities and challenges of each student in a class. Itis therefore necessary that every teacher provides his or her effortfairly but in consideration of the student abilities.Byworking together, the two teachers fulfilled the principles of code6A-10.081, part 5c. Their actions illustrate the professionalism bynot interfering with each other, but reasoning together to addresscomplex situations. The two teachers` objective discussions about theproblem and gave honest critique of each other’s point. This gavereason, logic and kindness a room in presenting their professionalviews. While the view of Sharon was to keep Tyrone in the same classwith the rest of the students and handle him in a special way, then,the view of her colleagues was different. Her thought of takingTyrone to Mary’s EH class is a valid argument that will improve thelearning experience of the nine-year old special needs learner. Onthe other hand, Sharon gives an honest view that separating Tyronemay affect his learning process.However,parents are the members of the community that should be involved inmaking such a decision. Teachers should understand the diversitieswith students and involve the parents in making certain decision thataffect the learning of the students. For the two teachers, they wereconsiderate to understand the circumstances, but should do more byinvolving other people. At the same time, they should involvespecialists in conditions like the one portrayed by Tyrone. This willhelp in making the best decision for Tyrone and will keep everybodyin agreement to encourage Tyrone.Afterfollowing the circumstances in the case, I believe that it would bebetter for the special needs student like Tyrone to be given adifferent class session than the other students. This will be awin-win situation, where the other students will experience a highquality level instruction like the one they experienced in the firstfew months (Everyone’sRights n.d).At the same time, the special needs student like Tyrone will dobetter if he gets a full time attention of an EH student.
