Active conservationist and support the Green Party
You teach middle school science. You are an active conservationist and support the Green Party. You go through all the approved curriculum materials during the summer break removing lessons that teach processes that you disagree with and substitute lessons from the political material you receive. Were any ethics principles violated?

This situation violated a teacher's obligation to the student, and to the public:

3d: The teacher shall not intentionally suppress or distort subject matter...

4a: Shall take reasonable precautions to distinguish between personal views and those of any educational institution...with which the individual is affiliated.

Yes, principles were violated. Students have a right to learn the material that you are withholding from them.

Is it bad to teach children to be ecological? Of course not. The Green Party does not have a whole lot of steam these days, but their policies are sound. I actually voted Green Party in the last election and met with Jill Stein.

I think we need to put ecological frameworks in place as soon as possible, and get kids inspired to be proactive in cleaning trash and recycling and putting an infrastructure in place that will eliminate wasteful corporate power and provide ethical products for everyone.

Every teacher is biased anyway, I am not ashamed of presenting my personal biases to children, as I believe that we can make a better future together.

It is up to us as teachers to affect future generations as much as possible.
