Educators must make decisions daily that can have reputational, legal and financial consequences. Making ethical decisions is more than just choosing what's right over what's wrong. It's often also about finding the path with the least amount of risk for all involved.
Codes of ethics are common in professions that, like teaching, require specialized knowledge, training and formal credentialing. In our increasingly complex world, the need for guidance is urgent for educators who are entrusted with the cognitive, academic and emotional well-being of our students, but who often must rely on their own best guesses as to how to handle potentially difficult situations.
The ProEthica® program, aligned to the Model Code of Ethics for Educators (MCEE), assists teachers and school leaders in applying professional ethics in their practice.
