Journal of Education and Learning, v2 n1 p92-103 2013
This paper examines the content fields of the concept of "teachers' moral courage" in order to conceptualize its boundaries. The study's purpose was to assess the dimensions of morally courageous activity within school life by qualitatively analyzing of 17 Israeli Secular Public School Teachers and 14 Israeli Religious Public School teachers' interviewee defined self-narrative. The findings reveal that the interviewees' answers express a profound understanding about the concept of moral courage, and a content domains definition of morally courageous educational behavior in three realms: the institution, the curriculum and the personal. Moreover, it reveals that the interviewee's claim that the Israeli educational system is characterized by instructional price tags for teachers' morally courageous behavior.
