Abstract

This study investigated adult educators' ethical dilemmas and attitudes regarding the need for a code of ethics to guide their practice. Through the use of survey methodology, three major groups of adult education practitioners in Indiana responded to various questions about ethical dilemmas they encountered, their personal experiences with codes of ethics, and their perceptions about the need for a code, as well as their ideas regarding the creation and implementation of a code of ethics for adult education. Results indicate that organizations associated with adult education should seriously consider codes of ethics. More emphasis on providing practitioners with training and education regarding ethics and more research conducted on ethics in adult education are suggested.
