Pluralism, Tolerance and Moral Education

Journal of Moral Education 11 (3):173-180 (1982)
Abstract In several recent writings, including some of those discussed below, the promotion of tolerance is advocated as part of a programme of moral education for children. This suggestion is frequently made against a background claim of a current or expected pluralism in British society, sometimes together with a belief in some form of moral relativism. My article seeks to clarify what relationship there might be between pluralism and tolerance and to go further in exploring the concept of tolerance than is usually done by some who advocate it, and to consider its claimed status as a virtue fit for our children to adopt as a result of the efforts of those engaged in moral education
