2. Teachers should not be accused of brainwashing children when they insist on basic decency, honesty, and fairness. 3. Children should be told stories that reinforce goodness. In high school and college, students should be reading, study- ing, and discussing the moral classics. I am suggesting that teachers must help children become acquainted with their moral heritage in literature, in religion, and in philosophy. I am suggesting that virtue can be taught, and that effective moral education appeals to the emotions as well as to the mind. The best moral teaching inspires students by making them keenly aware that their own character is at stake.
