Children must be taught morality. They must be taught to recognise the authority of moral standards and to understand what makes them authoritative. But there’s a problem: the content and justification of morality are matters of reasonable disagreement among reasonable people. Michael Hand is Professor of Philosophy of Education in the School of Education and Deputy Director of the Midlands Graduate School ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership. He is the Editor of the IMPACT pamphlet series and the Bloomsbury Philosophy of Education book series. Michael’s research interests are in the areas of moral, political, religious and philosophical education.
