Religion and Moral Education

(p.263) 12 Religion and Moral Education
Does God Make a Difference?

Warren A. Nord

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by rehearsing the three-level scheme for thinking about moral education proposed in Chapter 6, drawing out the implications for the role of religion. It goes on to consider whether moral education can be adequately pursued by way of natural inclusion in existing courses, or whether there should be required courses in ethics. As with religion, it argues that a double-prong strategy is required: virtually all courses must be sensitive to moral concerns, but there must also be required courses in ethics or what is referred to as morality and meaning, at both the high school and undergraduate levels. The chapter takes as a case study how schools should address sexuality. It also briefly discusses the environmental crisis and the implications of science and technology for morality.
