 5. Moralities concerning the teachers’ responsibilities towards the society, which involve respecting and honoring the students’ parents, consulting with them in all aspects concerning their children, disclosing no information of the students of their families and participating in the Parents’ Councils.

       Finally, this research recommends emphasizing the significant role played by the faculties concerned with qualifying the teachers through consolidating the professional moralities of teachers, and urges the educational administration to apply them in evaluating the teachers.  Moreover, the educational media should attend to these moralities and the professional societies and unions of teachers should adopt them.  In addition, it is the responsibility of the concerned authorities to support the social and economic status of teachers to enable them to adhere to their professional moralities in every aspect.
