what grade are you talking about? kids brains aren't even able to grasp many of the complex notions of morallity. schools should teach what they currently teach. history, math, science, physical ed, and computer science (future is coming). maybe some art, shop, and home ed. higher grades should start learning finance and how to handle their money. that one is currently missing from most schools and badly needs to be introduced.
Schools should send the mindset of a child to that level from where she/he can understand moral problems of US as well as their own.
Meaning that school itself and institutions of it outweigh the individual knowledge of students.
I agree with you, but I insist school is primarily for social tuning. School should propagate views of having children when married and other actions that increase chances of living happily and successfully in the United States.
Neither. School should give you the tools to deal with them yourself. School should introduce you to critical thinking, the skills to analyze data, verify your opinions, recognize your prejudices, etc... Moral problems shouldn't be dictated by any public institution, especially school. School shouldn't indoctrinate any conclusive answer to a subjective question.
