The Moral Vacuum in Teacher Education Research and Practice
Sanger, Matthew; Osguthorpe, Richard
Yearbook of the National Society for the Study of Education, v112 n1 p41-60 2013
This chapter examines the gap between the widespread acknowledgment that teaching is a moral endeavor, on the one hand, and the lack of explicit, systematic teacher education research and practice to support preparing teachers for the moral aspects of teaching. After providing an initial description of the aforementioned gap, the chapter surveys the evidence that such a gap exists, then takes up a number of themes found in the literature bordering the gap. It concludes with a discussion of possible paths for teacher education research and practice to move forward.
