DEOLINDO, Karina Luciane Silva; CAETANO, Luciana Maria  and  YAEGASHI, Solange Franci Raimundo. The concepts of moral education of teachers education students. Bol. psicol [online]. 2015, vol.65, n.143, pp. 193-210. ISSN 0006-5943.

This article presents a study that compared Teachers Education students concepts about moral education. The number of participants was 58 students, divided equally in two different public universities. Students of Group A did not have the subject of morality teached in the curriculum, but Students of Group B did. Students answered a written questionnaire containing 10 questions, half of the questions about their training and the other questions about the concepts of moral education. The main hypothesis of the study was that Group B undergraduates would have better elaborated responses compared to the answers of students from Group A. The hypothesis was partially confirmed. Group B responses were more assertive and coherent than those of Group A. But the answers found in both groups were theoretically superficial, revealing that these future educators have deficiencies in their knowledge about development and moral education

Keywords : Moral education; moral development; teacher training.
