De School als Morele Gemeenschap


  • Marry Biemond, Dr Driestar Educatief, Netherlands


The maintenance of order and discipline has become an important issue in schools, not only in South-Africa, but also in Europe and elsewhere. In societies developing towards higher levels of democracy it is important to realize that discipline in schools directly relates to and impacts on society as well. In the Netherlands, many schools – including Christian schools – are currently discussing different styles of maintaining school discipline. This article contends that the research of Lawrence Kohlberg as well as that of Larry P. Nucci can be helpful in a discussion about schools as moral communities. It also outlines the steps that a Christian school could consider in moving towards becoming a moral community.
