Abstract [en]

The aim of the present study was to examine Swedish and Turkish student teachers' moral educational and citizenship educational goal preferences in values education. The participants were 198 Swedish and 190 Turkish student teachers. While Turkish student teachers seemed to be more morally committed and eclectic than Swedish student teachers, hypothesized gender differences could only be found in the Swedish sample. Whereas there was no difference in their commitment towards critical-progressive goals, Turkish student teachers expressed a stronger commitment to traditional-conservative goals than Swedish student teachers.
