About Teaching Ethics in Schools: New Approaches to Moral Education:

Teaching Ethics in Schools provides a fresh approach to moral education. Rather than conveying a set of mandated values, codes of conduct, behaviour management plans or religious instruction, moral education is presented as an essential aspect of study throughout the school curriculum. Ethical concepts from the history of philosophy are introduced, which in turn link to ways of thinking about conduct and character. The book illuminates all kinds of moral dilemmas and contemporary challenges faced by teachers today. Responsibilities of parents vis a vis schools, and religious versus secular paradigms are discussed. The principles of social diversity and inclusion, and the need to find a balance between moralising and permissive social constructs are explored. Teaching Ethics in Schools shows how an ethical framework forms a natural fit with recent educational trends that emphasise collaboration and inquiry-based learning.
