An honor code or honor system is a set of rules or principles governing a community based on a set of rules or ideals that define what constitutes honorable behavior within that community. An honor code implements a set code that specifies certain rules in their school. An honor code doesn’t benefit students trust in their school system. An honor code can end up making students engage in mistrust, create misuse of the code, and can cause students to be at odds with each other. When students are forced to commit to an honor code, every student isn’t going to be 100% honest.
To know if you want to attend Stanford University, you need to be comfortable with their location. Stanford University is 35 miles south of San Francisco, 20 miles North of San Jose, and it is located in the city of Palo Alto, California. It is nearly a community unto itself and even has its own zip code--94305. If you are flying to Palo Alto, California from Kansas City, Missouri then the distance would be 1496 miles and it will take 3 hours and 42 minutes to get there. If you are driving to Palo Alto, California from Kansas City, Missouri, then the distance would be 1837 miles and it will take 1 day and 2 hours to get there.
Are you an honorable person? would you tell if someone was doing something wrong? these two questions are important and Unwritten rules called honor codes. Honor codes have been in schools and workplaces for many years. The guidelines are simple for most iron codes.
Fear breeds dishonesty and dishonesty breeds dishonor. Today's students often find themselves as unwilling informants and police officers, serving as honor watchdogs upon their own classmates out of fear of the consequences they will face if they don't. This student on student judgement solely cultivates a culture of distrust and suspicion instead of one of honor, integrity and respect. For the honor system to be truly effective, it must be revised to have classmates solely serve as each others judges, through honor councils. The honor code itself also must be redefined so that it can serve as a guideline of the values members of the community should uphold, instead of a system of rigid rules and consequences and do’s and don’ts, meant to terrify
My school would greatly benefit from the application of an honor code as long as such a code is approved by the student body. Such an honor code would bring about students to reconsider their actions before cheating on a test. This is because an honor code has the ability to create a culture among students which discourages cheating. Also, including harsh punishments within the honor code would dishearten students from cheating out of fear of potential consequences. Schools which have not benefited from honor codes are very different from Classical, and therefore do not prove that an honor code would be ineffective at Classical.
Undeserving, Underserved, or the Most Deserving? In White Men Can't Jump, Ron Shelton uses the streetball scene in a poor LA neighborhood to examine the friendship of Billy Hoyle and Sidney Deane. Examining the ways in which the two financially struggling protagonists treat each other, Shelton challenges the viewer to reflect on whether to value the cutthroat “smoke or be smoked” mentality or prioritize one's honor above all else. The former characterizes most of their actions in the first half of the movie, while the latter is a way of thinking they adopt only by the end.
School Dress codes do not allow students to completely express their individuality. Schools want students to be able to think for themselves and create a sense of who they are, but it is not easy when they are forced to abide by rules that take away from from that. It should be a place of expressing ourselves freely in a learning environment without having to worry about what we wear as an interfering issue. The fact that the school system cares more about the student dress code than their education is an issue in itself. Schools should promote dress code individuality because of religious aspects, mental health, and human experience.
There are many different views of honor. To some honor means fame and recognition, to others honor is not even relevant, it is only a word, with no true meaning or substance. The idea of honor meaning fame and recognition comes from Shakespeare's character Hotspur, a nobleman of the time. Whilst the idea that honor is not tangible or necessary comes from another character, Falstaff, a drinker who has very little motivation. Whereas, the third idea of honor is from my own belief.
Modern honor in America is something that we give through acknowledgment. This is done through awards and medals. Some of the medal that is given out is the medal of honor and the Nobel peace prize, however some people are honored to an amount that they do not deserve it. Honor can be defined in many different ways.
The honor code is thought to be effective, when taking tests, but is it making students even more nervous, than they already are. The honor code is mostly used by universities because of the size of some of the classes, which doesn’t allow the professor to keep their eyes on all their students. The honor code can be used against those who cheat those who witness the cheating and fail to report it. The honor system enforces students to not cheat and to keep an eye on their peers, so that it’s no unfair.
I have had the opportunity to be in Honor Society since the end of my sophomore year. Though my school does not pay the fee to be part of the National Honor Society, we hold the same values. To qualify and remain associated with Honor Society, I am required to demonstrate excellence in areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Most people think that grades are the most predominant characteristic of Honor Society. I personally find that the community service we do is the most important and rewarding.
The North Carolina State Board of Education outlines the professional standards to which teaches should uphold within, and even outside of, the classroom. These standards are comprised of the commitment to the student, commitment to the school, and commitment to the profession.

Ultimately, the NC Code of Ethics is a set of rules in which teachers must uphold during their career. Discussion Commitment to the Student
