Being a Teacher: Reading 9a. A Code of Conduct

Being a Teacher: Reading 9a. A Code of Conduct

One of the most important means of ensuring professional accountability
among teachers in South Africa (and of ensuring that such accountability
is administered by teachers themselves) is the Code of Conduct of the
South African Council of Educators (SACE). Introduced in 1997, the Code
establishes the basic standards by which teachers’ professional conduct
may be judged. Note that the Code provides teachers with many positive
guidelines on professional conduct as well as purely prohibitive rules.
