Teacher training for moral education in China
Moral education as a concept is very comprehensive in China. It is implemented in two ways, one of which is through subject-based moral education, the other is by means of all kinds of extra-curricular activities. There are three groups of moral educators: teachers of subject-based moral education, Party administrators and class teachers. The initial training of these teachers is undertaken at three levels of teacher training institutions: teachers' universities, colleges or schools. Three in-service training approaches are described and illustrated: the first takes place in teachers' universities; the second is a school-based approach; and the third is characterized by cooperation between university and school. Challenges for the further improvement of the training of moral educators are outlined and some suggestions made.
