Abstract:

It seems clear that the fundamental goal of social and environmental education is one of helping students to develop the skills and dispositions to participate fully as citizens in a just democratic society.  We argue that making significant progress towards this worthy goal depends crucially on engaging students in the processe of rational ethical justification.  Yet, on the whole, teachers of social and environmental education are rarely prepared or equipped to go beyond research-based classroom lessons. This paper outlines a way forward.

Keywords: rational ethical justification; ethical inquiry; social and environmental education
