This investigation includes not only the development of the codes of ethics adopted by the state teachers’ associations, but the codes which have been adopted by local associations of teachers as well . The impetus gained from the formulation and adoption of local codes of ethics and their enforcement carried the movement onward and finally resulted in the adoption of similar codes by state teachers’ associations for state-wide application. Examples of local codes are Batavia, Illinois; Boise, Idaho; and Sedalia, Missouri. Parenthetically it may be said, however, that, since the advent of the state codes as well as the national code, the local ones have been rapidly sinking into a general condition of discard.
