Admittance to the Moral Domain . . . Where Schools Have Feared to Tread. Curriculum Report, Vol. 6, No. 2.
This report examines the topic of moral education and describes the current trend toward increased adoption of moral education programs for public schools. The author identifies four different approaches to moral education, focusing mainly on the cognitive-developmental approach or Kohlberg model and the affective-relativist or values clarification approach. Much of the report is devoted to brief descriptions of eight moral education programs developed in different school districts around the country. In addition, the author briefly describes two recent books and four audiovisual aids that would be helpful to school officials in planning and implementing a moral education program. (JG)
