Moral Education Polices in Five Canadian Provinces: Seeking Clarity, Consistency and Coherency
Leinweber, K.; Donlevy, J. K.; Gereluk, D.; Patterson, P.; Brar, J.
Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, v43 n1 p25-42 Jan 2012
This paper asks the question, "What is the current status of provincial moral education polices in the five Canadian provinces which have mandated or optional moral education programs: Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, and Alberta?" It then offers a response through an analysis of the relevant policies in those provinces that draws upon Sanger and Osguthorpe's Moral Work of Teaching Framework. It concludes with the finding that there is a lack of clarity, consistency, and coherence in those policies which could be addressed through their ongoing examination, combined with the development of standardized terminology, and clearly stated definitions and assumptions.
