  • The National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) presents the Model Code of Ethics for Educators (MCEE), a common language of ethics developed by educators for educators that can support and guide decisions regarding professional practice. Ideal for in-service training or professional learning communities (PLCs). Get started with the following resources:
    • MCEE video features the educators who helped develop the MCEE and speaks to the importance of the code and its application in the classroom
    • DistruptEd is a two-part video conversation with Troy Hutchings and Phil Rogers about the Code of Ethics (Part 1 and Part 2)
    • Contact NASDTEC at support@nasdtec.org with questions or comments.
