1. You are a prekindergarten teacher in a state with a policy that, beginning in kindergarten, children must be taught only in English. Your school serves a large population of Spanish-speaking families. The principal thinks that putting all the Spanish-speaking children in separate classrooms with bilingual teachers who focus on teaching English will prepare them for the difficult transition to kindergarten. Most of the families support this practice because they want their children to succeed in school. The principal’s intentions are good, but the result is that prekindergarten children are segregated not only by language, but also by race.
In this situation, you face an ethical dilemma. You understand the principal’s point of view but feel that there is something inherently wrong in her solution. What are some actions you could take based on the NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct?
