Ethics education in teacher preparation: A case for stakeholder responsibility

Few would argue against the importance of ethics in early childhood teacher preparation and practice. However, arguing for something in principle does not always lead to action. The purpose of this paper is to bring attention to the need for a sharper applied focus on ethics in early childhood education than that which currently exists. A context for professional ethics in early childhood education is outlined, a case highlighting specific ethical considerations is presented, and, finally, concerns and insights are discussed. The discussion is anchored in professional ethical codes and the literature on teacher preparation and ethics education. (author abstract)
