The Ethics and Citizenship Program: A Brazilian Experience in Moral Education
Araujo, Ulisses; Arantes, Valeria
Journal of Moral Education, v38 n4 p489-511 Dec 2009
This article describes the Ethics and Citizenship Program, a moral education project developed by the Brazilian government to promote education in ethics and citizenship in Brazilian fundamental and middle schools through four key themes: ethics, democratic coexistence, human rights and social inclusion. Some findings from a research project that investigated whether such a program did in fact promote the ethical and citizenship awareness of participating students are outlined. As an introduction to the paper's main concerns, the Brazilian socioeconomic context is characterised, followed by a description of the historical background of moral education in Brazil. (Contains 3 tables and 8 notes.)
