Summary: Dr Starratt convincingly argues for much greater attention to ethical education and responds to sceptics who say that it cannot be done in the face of a pluralistic, secular society badly fragmented over values. Seeking always for themes and issues that unite rather than divide, he provides a conceptual foundation for ethical education, broad enough for building consensus among teachers and parents, yet focused enough to provide guidance for highly specific learning
activities. The second half of the book takes the reader through a carefully devised series of steps by which a school community might proceed in building their ethical school. Although it is conceded they will be faced by many difficulties along the way, the final chapter offers encouragement to strengthen the resolve of the school community.
