Social problems that indicate the moral degradation of youth forces us to ask questions about the possibility of an effective system of moral education. There is a debate concerning the aims and methods of this education among theoreticians of moral education. This article contains a short discussion of the cognitive-developmental conception of development and socio-moral education as well as the results of research pointing out the possibility of stimulating moral development of the individual. Presenting the reasons for which the stimulation of socio-moral development during the period of adolescence seems to be especially important and justified, the author presents her own proposal for a curriculum of moral education.
