Abstract After defining a moral stance, the article considers whether teachers are required, by virtue of their office, to adopt a publicly approved moral stance or are able to allow their teaching to be guided by their personal ethical opinions. If the former, there is difficulty in a pluralistic society of knowing what is being asked of them. Since teachers are also members of society the possibility of wide divergence is not great. Modern educational theories, however, imply that a teacher should not try to transmit a moral stance, but lead the pupils to a search for personal autonomy, and the teacher's own opinions may be less significant than in a didactic situation. When there are agreed ethical theories of society, the teacher is justified in teaching about them alongside the moral values implied in the idea of education. Finally the type of teacher that can meet these demands is discussed
