If You Are an Educator in New York State….

Over the years I’ve developed the habit of keeping a copy of the New York State Code of Ethics for Teachers–the 5 x 8 card stock copy the state distributes–in my briefcase. I like this simple, elegantly written set of principles and think it is a nice guide for my planning and conduct as a teacher. The document speaks to (dare I say this in this era of open contempt for educators?) the essential nobility of our profession.

My old copy has become frayed, so I typed it up. Here, then, I offer you the New York State Code of Ethics for Teachers as a Microsoft Word typescript.
