This discussion reminds me of when our school was inspected by the
State Department of Education. When they met with us they said
that it seemed to them that our school specialized in moral
education. As we tried to recover from our shock, we asked them
why they said that.

They said that since the democratic meeting process was constantly
dealing with moral situations--what consequences there should be
to behavior which broke meeting decisions--how the school should
spend its money--which activities we should sponsor, etc., that
this amounted to moral education. After some thought, we couldn't
disagree.
