Transformative Moral Education: Challenging an Ecology of Violence
Joseph, Pamela Bolotin; Mikel, Edward
Journal of Peace Education, v11 n3 p317-333 2014
From the perspective that we live amidst an ecology of violence, we contend that educators should not circumscribe their ethical roles by endorsing the dominant individualistic goals and practices of moral education. To counter a pervading worldview of violence and tolerance for violence, we propose instead that teachers embrace the multifaceted concept of transformative moral education as informed by the beliefs and aims of peace and ecojustice education. We explore the curricular aims and the ethical foundations of transformative moral education as well as the change of consciousness and development of agency for moral educators who challenge violence within human interactions and toward other living beings and the Earth.
