Abstract

In the educational environment, there is increas- ing interest in the teaching of ethics. At one time teaching was teaching ethics. Ethics was taught through literature, history, and other courses where applicable. Today, there is diminishing influence of churches and families in instill- ing ethical values in our youth, causing wide- spread decline in ethical standards. This decline creates a need for attention to ethics education, leading to attempts by educational systems to teach ethics in the academic environment. The following are examples of the movement toward Use of Ethical Dilemmas to including ethics education in the curriculum. Contribute to the Knowledge and Ethics in the Curriculum Behavior of High School Students There have been efforts to integrate ethics into the K-12 curriculum. For instance, the Kenan Ethics Program, Ethics Across the Curriculum, Annette Vincent, Ph.D. supports innovation in the teaching of ethics Melanie Meche, M.Ed. and the integration of moral inquiry across the University of Louisiana, Lafayette curriculum. Projects in the program have in- cluded the development of an environmental justice module focused on childhood exposure for a required course in Environmental Sci- ences, a faculty seminar to evaluate and revise the ethics curriculum in the Sanford Institute
