Abstract

The author of this article looks at why ethics should be taught in high schools and discusses Dewey's model for teaching ethics in a high school setting. She also looks at Peter Singer's essay, "Moral Experts" to see if moral expertise is needed for teaching ethics in high schools, and discusses a program developed by the Center for Education in Law and Democracy's The High School Ethics Project" being conducted in Colorado.
