In this day and age, character education in a secular context cannot be taught in classroom nor using textbooks / hypothetical situations any longer. We are just kidding ourselves. Gone are the days when parents and teachers were the primary sources of moral rights and wrongs. Our children and youth can now find solutions and advice to grey areas and complex moral issues using search engines and Yahoo answers. My role as an educator is to guide my students to make sense of the complexities of moral issues and help them find their own path, instead of prescribing a path. Finally, talk is cheap - unless parents and educators can walk the talk, we will never receive genuine respect from our youths.
