This paper makes a case for character education as a model for moral development. It essentially gives the state of art of the literature on character education by incorporating recent findings, for example, in the area of when does moral education begin. It summarizes criticisms against the dominant and influential moral education models values clarification and Kohlberg’s cognitive stage theory of moral development, and argues for an Aristotelian virtue-ethics approach to moral development and education. The role of religion is also discussed in the context. Some remarks on implementing a workable and effective character education program is given in the conclusion.
