Abstract

Moral education is an aspect of education that has been left in limbo since 21st century and it has been noted that part of the reason is that parents, churches, schools, and the society has always viewed the whole issue of our human morality as an unnecessary aspect of human development. Thus, this article is therefore, an attempt to reflect on the moral aspect of education in Nigeria, this was achieved by clarifying the concepts of education, morality, culture and multi-culture and went further to discuss about morality and education using Nigeria as a case study. The authors assert that in order to address the issue of moral education in Nigeria, there is the need to re-visit the seven objectives stated by Fafunwa 1974 which laid emphasis on moral and values related education, and this can be achieved through a rational reconstruction of our culture and education.
