The article focuses on the importance of moral training for students, parents and teachers. If the training and exercise of the spiritual and ethical qualities of man are neglected, then it is argued that there is failure in achieving the aims of the entire program of education. One of the most sought goals of instruction in the home, church and school is character. The ten points in the outline of attitude and policy of moral education include physical training, social training and musical training. These may be regarded as guiding signs in the campaign for character building. Health, creativeness, altruism and self-realization are included in the aims and possible outcomes of the philosophy of moral instruction.
