Moral Education and the Good Society: An IMPACT for HBCUs

Denise Pearson

Chapter Chapter 1 in Toward a Good Society in the Twenty-First Century, 2013, pp 3-21 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract My interest in the topic of moral education emerged while pursuing a master’s degree in conflict resolution, after completing master’s and doctorate degrees in education administration. A close examination of the three programs revealed strong cross-disciplinary connections from my perspective, although only loosely (if at all) associated across the curriculums. Coupled with nearly two decades of higher education experience—including teaching and administration—I have observed the behaviors of stakeholder groups throughout the educational enterprise and at times questioned their individual and collective moral reasoning, including my own. As such, this could not be treated simply as reflective practice, and a deeper study of relationships between these two disciplines continued to evolve. The idea of moral education and the good society is an extension of this pursuit of knowledge and meaning.
