An Ethic of Caring and Its Implications for Instructional Arrangements.
American Journal of Education, v96 n2 p215-30 Feb 1988
The concept of morality in American schools needs revising. Caring should be the moral orientation to teaching and the aim of moral education. Teachers and students should spend more time modeling, dialoguing, practicing, and confirming so that trust will develop. This model can also encourage collaborative inquiry between teachers and researchers. (VM)
