IT IS not surprising that science teachers feel uneasy about tackling ethical issues (TES, January 12). Like most of the population, they have had a very inadequate education in moral philosophy.
It is time that the moral foundations of ordinary community schools and vast numbers of non-religious pupils and teachers were given a boost. I the meantime, the British Humanist Association publishes a range of briefings on non-religious perspectives on contemporary moral, social, and scientific issues that science teachers, and others, might find helpful.
