Ethics and the Early Childhood Educator: Using the NAEYC Code. 2005 Code Edition
Freeman, Nancy; Feeney, Stephanie
National Association for the Education of Young Children
With updated language and references to the 2005 revision of the Code of Ethical Conduct, this book, like the NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct, seeks to inform, not prescribe, answers to tough questions that teachers face as they work with children, families, and colleagues. To help everyone become well acquainted with the Code and use it in one's professional life, Stephanie Feeney and Nancy Freeman present a useful framework as well as helpful examples and questions to clarify key points about ethical conduct and to stimulate reflection and discussion on the critical issues that confront everyone. Following a foreword to the 2005 Code Edition (Peter J. Pizzolongo); a foreword to the first edition (Marilyn M. Smith); a preface; and the "Code of Ethical Conduct and Statement of Commitment," this book presents the following chapters: (1) An Introduction to Morality and Ethics; (2) The NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct; (3) Addressing Ethical Issues; (4) Ethical Responsibilities to Children; (5) Ethical Responsibilities to Families; (6) Ethical Responsibilities to Colleagues; (7) Ethical Responsibilities to Community and Society; and (8) The Code of Ethical Conduct Is a Living Document. A list of references and recommended readings completes this edition. [For the 1999 edition of this book, see ED440768.]
