Abstract: This study examines the roles teachers play in Singapore’s education system, particularly in the moral development of our youths, and the crux of it all, as moral educators – that is, to teach morally. The newly established Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) provides an excellent platform to investigate the latter. The hidden curriculum, which is the key concept in this study, is used alongside various other theories and concepts, such as Structuration Theory, to explore how it influences and affects the overall teaching attitudes of educators in particular regard to moral education. Through 15 interviews with experienced educators from the Secondary level, who have been teaching in the Singapore’s education system for at least 4 years and are highly familiar with the new CCE’s curriculum, the reasons behind their conceptualized actions and attitudes towards moral education are further explored and explained.
