This bill is absolutely necessary to preserve the integrity, neutrality and professionalism of educators in k-12 schools in Virginia. I do not any good reason why any professional educator would not welcome adhering to a code of ethics that is a straightforward as this one proposed in HJ 841. I fully support LaRock's resolution and hope he will introduce a bill for a code of ethics in the 2020 GA session.
