ECNU Review of Education (ROE) appreciates your time for this email, a brief introduction to our freshest special issue titled “Ethical Codes for Kindergarten Teachers From Different Countries” this December. Early childhood education and kindergarten teachers have a crucial role to play in the healthy development of a child. Therefore, it is necessary to ensure ethical and professional conduct by kindergarten teachers towards their students. However, current discussions regarding professional standards for kindergarten teachers overlook ethics.
In this special issue of the ECNU Review of Education, the authors discuss the importance of ethical codes in early education, while examining their characteristics and theoretical bases. We publishes 5 thought-provoking and well-composed research articles by scholars from different regions. Besides, we have also prepared some regular papers from our accepted natural submissions, and the first three of them mainly focus on the textbook studies in moral education. Hope your exploratory journey to our winter issue is enriching!
