Perceptions of Teachers About Moral Education in Trinidad and Tobago

Journal of Moral Education 10 (2):95-108 (1981)
Abstract This article aims to identify the perceptions of teachers about moral education in Trinidad and Tobago. Part I presents teachers? perceptions which emerged from responses to the following questions: 1. Who should be responsible for moral education? 2. How should moral education be done? 3. Does moral education involve reasoning and/or behaviour? 4. Should moral education be a separate course or part of existing courses? 5. What resources and services are needed in order to carry out moral education? Part II presents a selection of responses in the form of quotations to Question 6: What one main, crucial question or comment is uppermost in your thinking about moral education? The responses have been analysed and critiqued. It is envisaged that research and development in moral education curricula will be informed by these perceptions, and that the introduction of effective programmes in moral education could influence the quality of life both in the school as a society and in the larger community outside
