Learning for Life: Moral Education Theory and Practice

Synopsis

There is a growing consensus in society on the need for schools and colleges to address the issue of moral education, despite argument over the philosophy and psychology that should guide it and the practice that should characterize it. This compilation is reflective of the cognitive developmental approach associated primarily with Lawrence Kohlberg and his colleagues, and includes recent theoretical writing on moral education. Some topics addressed are the ethic of care; accounts of moral education programs in the classroom and on the athletic field; and discussions of democratic governance in schools.
