I'm not aware of any union-controlled bureaucracy that effectively teaches morality and ethics. Simply can't happen. To think otherwise is to ignore history.

Ethics and morality come primarily from the parents. Children learn from watching the behavior of their family members. Nothing promotes ethics and morality like an ethical and moral set of parents. No other source even remotely compares. Teachers have limited impact on this issue.
