Education is an inherently moral matter. It is moral because people develop (or fail to develop) morally as well as physically, emotionally, and intellectually. It is moral because teaching--helping to shape other people's minds, sensibilities, and capabilities -raises deep questions of purpose, values, and responsibility.

 

It is moral because it involves the relationship between one generation and another, a relationship that helps determine the direction and quality of human life" (p. 152). Therein lies our uppermost responsibility. We must stay in touch with our conscience and allow it to inform our decisions.
