Title: Taking back our children : a conceptual framework for teaching self-respect and respect for persons

Abstract: The present study identifies some particular concepts in moral education, namely self-respect and respect for persons, clarifies the meaning of these concepts through the analysis of philosophical literature and synthesizes the characteristics of persons that are said to possess the virtues or values in question. The second major objective of the study was to pursue the argument that just as it is the case with science concepts, for example, moral concepts must be clearly understood and the components that bear upon them clearly identified before they are implemented in the curriculum. The second objective was facilitated by examining educational literature on the subjects of self-respect and respect for persons, comparing the philosophical and the educational usages of the constructs and pointing out problems of curricular implementation which could be attributed to lapses between them.
