NASDTEC's Model Code of Ethics

NACCTEP would like to highlight the excellent work of the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC)

Model Code of Ethics

The MCEE serves as a guide for future & current educators faced with the complexities of P-12 education.  The code establishes principles for ethical best practice, mindfulness, self-reflection, and decision-making, setting the groundwork for self-regulation & self-accountability.  The establishment of this professional code of ethics, by educators and for educators, honors the public trust and upholds the dignity of the profession.
