Moral Education, Democratic Imperatives and Political Constraints

德育、民主要務及政治約制

Albert Victor KELLY

Abstract

This paper will argue that the most important ingredient in the provision of moral education is a supportive context both within the individual school and in a society's schooling system, and that policies and practices in relation to the school curriculum are of particular importance in this respect. It will also stress the converse of this, namely that, if the schooling system and especially the school curriculum are framed in terms and on models which do not reflect the moral values and principles we are concerned to promote, then moral education becomes difficult and probably impossible.

摘要

本文指出推行德育的要素,是具備一個校內和社會教育系統都支持的環境。而當中學校課程的方針和常務尤其重要。反過來說,如果教育系統(尤其是學校課程)依循的範例並不反映我們要提倡的道德價值和原則,那麼推行德育便很困難,甚至幾乎是不可能。
