Moral education is often criticized on the strength of premises, such as, no one can say what is right or wrong in morals or morals are relative. In other words, moral education faces criticisms which are based on certain meta-ethical foundations. In this paper several of these criticisms are outlined. It is argued that there may be ways of responding to such criticisms which might cover most of ethics or the nature of indoctrination or questions to do with neutrality in moral education. However, it is also argued that the most powerful and effective response to many criticisms of moral education which stem from some meta-ethical foundation is to draw attention to the inconsistency of those criticisms
