This research seeks to draw attention to the ethical aspects of the teaching profession, to find whether and how teachers perceive this aspect of their work, if they put it into practice and how they evaluate it. Our hypothesis is that if ethical considerations are given due respect by schools if teachers are professionally sensitive towards unethical behaviour, then schools will better meet the difficult but unavoidable duty of supporting young people’s moral development.
