PfP Blog Thought leaders debate the significance of ethics in schools

On 7 August 2018 The Ethics Institute of South Africa (TEI), in conjunction with PfP, hosted a workshop to discuss ethical issues arising in South African schools

As an independent public benefit institute producing original thought leadership, TEI holds the conviction that the years spent at school are among the most crucial for our moral development and that a strong ethical culture is a critical part of the formula at work in well-performing schools.

This formed the basis of the one-day workshop, which sought to explore the notion of ‘schools as moral communities’ and how to make this a reality in South Africa. The in-depth discourse covered themes including: generating leadership commitment to running schools as moral communities, building consensus within school communities around ethical standards, and ensuring that all school stakeholders are both ‘ethically aware’ and motivated to be responsible members of the school as a moral community.
