This unit considers the ethics and values dimensions of issues in education. Students will become familiar with and use the language and key ideas of both Christian and non-Christian ethical frameworks. They will consider their role as decision makers in the morally complex school environment and apply a reflective ethical decision making process informed by Lutheran theology which leads to decisions which are theologically and educationally justifiable.
