Race, Culture and Moral Education

Journal of Moral Education 15 (1):10-15 (1986)
Abstract Current debate on race, culture, religion and moral education is often bogged down in abstract definition and theoretical arguments, leading away from, instead of towards, practical action. Sometimes the false formulation of abstractions leads to misplaced actions. Where moral education is concerned, the great need at present is to look at general moral standards and arguments first, and apply these to behaviour affecting racial inequality, rather than to start from a concentration on racism, working back towards morality. It is seriously misleading to confuse ?race? and ?culture? or to see religion only as?an aspect of culture. But because these matters are already often confused with each other in the perceptions of people of all colours, religions and cultures in this country, one must be sensitive to the consequences of this confusion
