ABSTRACT
The author looks at the moral education of the American child without religion. The author observes that without religion, morality among the students is becoming unsettled. The author disputes the assertion of the president of Clark University in the U.S. who asserts that moral education without religion is possible as it is in Japan and should be adopted in the U.S. The author disagrees with Hall because the edict of the emperor from which virtues are taken up in Japanese schools is said to be venerated as if it were of divine origin.
