Aren’t our fellow human beings worthy of respect, simply because they are human beings?
Without a doubt, so much of our society is currently broken. Hate crimes and intolerances towards women, Muslims and marginalised communities are continuing to rise, and the current compulsory education system is undoubtedly failing to adequately support children and families.
Virtue Ethics Foundation is working to ensure that children are supported to understand and appreciate human dignity through structured character education.
Respect, fairness, courage, forbearance and compassion are not ‘duties’ we should be told to adopt, they are the basis of good moral character and, as teachers, parents and carers, we have a duty to support and nurture our children to develop these compassions.
