International Codes of Ethics for K-12 Educators: A Hermeneutic Analysis
The researcher will conduct a hermeneutic analysis of educator codes of ethics of countries in which English is the predominant language and consider the extent to which they address the awareness of marginalized groups. A key purpose is to initiate inquiry into and discussion of national codes of ethics as impetus for prompting thinking and prodding awareness of issues and topics regarding marginalized students as they are conceptualized in the broadest level of philosophical direction, awareness, and policy. The hope is that by highlighting the inclusion or omission of these issues in national codes of ethics, broader professional and public awareness can work to influence policy toward the treatment of marginalized groups. Revealing overarching patterns and themes reflected at these broadest philosophical levels may heighten awareness of these concepts for those who shape policy and develop ethical guidelines affecting k-12 education. It may also offer suggestions for improved ethical training and awareness of prospective educators.
