Welcome to our Blog

The Ethics Institute at Kent Place School is a first-of-its-kind institute at the primary and secondary school level. We believe that promoting the process and practice of ethical thinking and decision-making prepares people of all ages to be effective leaders and compassionate citizens.

Our blog focuses on ethics in schools and communities. Here you will find articles highlighting ethics-based programming, educational research on ethics, and ethical issues in current events. We hope to provide resources to support the teaching and learning of ethics and ethical decision-making.

We believe in the importance of multiple perspectives, as this is a key part of developing well-informed and well-considered ideas. For this reason, we have several contributors to our blog: teachers, students, administrators, ethicists and researchers.
