Student Action Teams, Values Education and Quality Teaching and Learning—Case Study from the Manningham Cluster, Victoria

In recent years, increasing emphasis has been placed on the need for an explicit reference to values in the education of young people to help them lead lives of meaning, purpose and responsibility. Sometimes the terminology differs: “moral education”, “Values Education” or “character education”. Sometimes there is a different emphasis or approach: the character approach focussing on action; the cognitive developmental approach focussing on the process of ethical decision-making; the caring approach, aimed at establishing, restoring, or enhancing relationships (Howard 2005, p. 2). Sometimes initiatives have been linked to quality teaching and learning; only recently have they come to be linked to quality teacher development and renewal.
