This study presents a composite picture of teaching in the Public Schooling System in the United States. It does this, through an examination of relevant literature, with respect to the structure and practice of teaching, and the preparation of teachers in teacher-training institutions
The findings are then critiqued, according to the moral theories of Nel Noddings and Lawrence Kohlberg, in order to ascertain the possibilities for moral education within the schools
The study also includes a separate discussion (and critique according to the same moral theories) of several schools, also within the public schooling system, considered to be unusually successful
