|Subject:||Legislation – Creates a Teacher Code of Ethics|
|I plan to introduce legislation that amends the Public School Code of 1949 to create a code of ethics and professional responsibility for our public K-12 grade school teachers.
Specifically, this code of ethics and professional responsibility proscribes public elementary or secondary schoolteachers while operating within the scope of their employment from endorse, support, or oppose any the following:
Our K-12 school teachers should not be using their classroom time spent on political or
ideological indoctrination. Doing so takes time away from instruction in the academic foundation subjects of mathematics, science, English, history, and civics, and prevents our students from receiving a high-quality public education for careers in the global, high-tech economy. Teachers in violation of this code will be subject to penalties such as probation, suspension, and loss of their teaching licenses.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important piece of legislation.
Introduced as HB2750
