Teacher pledge

I came across this teacher pledge from a book published in 1918.

Note the end where the individual promises to quit the work of teaching if unable to live up to the stated standards, so as to prevent one’s own shortcomings from falling upon “the lives of boys and girls whose potentialities for growth would be blighted” by a teacher’s arrested development.

Wouldn’t you love to see a teacher’s union take up such a cause?
