Program for Implementing Curriculum on Ethical Decision Making. Draft Copy.
Gallagher, James J.
Public education has been preoccupied with the rapid development of the physical sciences and mathematics, which place a premium on developing the reasoning processes but not on the adequate construction of value judgments. The purpose of the present program is to provide a means of presenting character education within a curriculum consistent with child development and with the diverse values backgrounds of our culture. The focus of such a curriculum must help a student understand how a decision can be made and how one can learn more about himself and others by observing others make choices. Pilot work has been undertaken by the Unitarian-Universalist Church in the field of ethics and cultural relativity in different parts of the country, and a set of long-range objectives for the development and implementation of these new programs has been constructed. Financial support is being requested for the crucial reevaluation of materials and for training of persons who will put the curriculum into wider use. (DE)
