The purpose of this emerging study is to explore the teacher codes of ethics of the 50 American states to determine the ethical guidance that states provide their teachers. The study seeks to discover to what extent the codes address concerns for vulnerable student populations. These include references to gender, sexual preference, transgender, race, ethnicity, religion, or disability. The study seeks to discover which states specifically address concerns for vulnerable populations. Next, the study seeks to describe prevailing themes regarding the ethical expectations of teacher across states. The study highlights the imperative to specifically address the needs of vulnerable and marginalized students in the U.S. by providing ethical direction to teachers through professional codes of ethics.
