Preamble to the NEA Code

● “The educator recognizes the magnitude of the responsibility inherent in the teaching
process. The desire for the respect and confidence of one's colleagues, of students, of
parents, and of the members of the community provides the incentive to attain and
maintain the highest possible degree of ethical conduct. The Code of Ethics of the
Education Profession indicates the aspiration of all educators and provides standards by
which to judge conduct.”
Principle 1

● “The success of students is the success

of teachers.”

● “Fairness is paramount in teaching”

Principle 2

● Commitment to Profession
● Lawyers have guidelines, and so do
doctors; teachers are no different than
these two career choices they need
boundaries clearly defined.
● Furthermore, teaching is not a job it is a
full on career that educators must take
seriously in order to retain credibility in
the public eye
Pragmatic Ethics
(Ethical Fence)

● The educator should follow guidelines as stated by NEA and reinforced in credential programs like
National University.
● Teachers are in the public eye and by simply following NEA ethical guidelines will protect their careers
and provide an ethical fence for themselves for any future litigation.
● Also, by following guidelines you reaffirm those very same guidelines helping keep peers, students and
administrators on the straight and narrow path of educational freedom
Ethical Wisdom

● “The only true wisdom is in knowing you

know nothing.” (Socrates)
