No Teacher Left Behind (NTLB): Raising the Standard for Ethical Teachers
Guarneri, Cristina M.; Achilles, Charles M.
Online Submission
From 2001 to 2009, about 4.5 million students will report some type of educator misconduct during their K-12 schooling, and as many as 9 out of 10 cases may go unreported (Shakeshaft, 2007). Codes of ethical conduct have decreased misconduct cases within other helping professions. Since there has been an increased awareness of teacher behavior, 25 out of 50 Professional Standards Boards throughout the United States have established codes of ethical conduct to raise the standard for teachers. Codes of ethical conduct seem to increase ethical decision-making among teachers. The New York State Code of Ethics for Educators is appended. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
