Common sense is not always the best guiding principle. Personally, I would recommend that any research you undertake has ethical approval from your teacher or ethics committee at your school or in the institution from which you may be recruiting. Indeed, if you are studying students at a different college or workers from a local factory, always insist that the establishment vets your design on ethical grounds. Never carry out research without seeking advice from your teacher, tutor, or other appropriate member of your school or college.
