Directions: Read the case scenario as identified below. Guided by your understanding, use the National Education Association Code of Ethics (NEA), NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct and Statement of Commitment, the Mississippi Educator Code of Ethics Standard of Conduct, and the INTASC Model Core Standards to identify the standard violated, the offense committed, and the ethical violations.
Mrs. Anna Lee Davis does not want her student Joel to be the highest honor awardee recognized at the assembly program. Instead, she prefers that the award and honoree be Leonard. To ensure that Leonard will get the highest honor award, Mrs. Davis did not base her decision on the use of any type of assessment, students’ grades or skills that identified the students learning and development. She simply based her decision on her admiration for Leonard. Mrs. Davis was not aware of Joel abilities. She gave Joel low grades in music recitation and in performance tasks. Joel felt like he was never challenged, appreciated, or fit in the school environment.
Do you think Mrs. Davis was ethical in her behavior? Is it right for Mrs. Davis to give Joel low grades just to make Leonard the awardee? Identify and explain what violations Mrs. Davis committed according to NEA, NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct, MS Educator Code of Ethics Standards and Conduct, and the INTASC Model Core Standards. Identify and explain in detail how this act may have been a violation according to each of the ethical codes.
