The paper attempts to characterize attitudes and opinions of the young Łódź teachers which are related to moral aspects- of the social and professional tasks they.perform. Attitudes and opinions of the old generation of teachere form a kind of background for studying the problem. From the available data it follows that, despite an established conviction, young teachers show more critical judgement of their moral attitudes than the old teachers. Ihey are also more conscious of the presence of conflict situations and the necessity to face moral choices in their professional activity. At the same time they often lack professional responsibility e.g. they are late for lessons or are not prepared properly. At any rate, they admit it more frequently than the old teachers do. The teachers' attitudes are influenced on the one hand by lax social discipline which permits certain relativism of evaluation of moral norms, and on the other hand by teachers’ working conditions which do not encourage the young to meet high moral standardes. The specific tasks that teachers fulfill make us expect more self-consciousness concerning the moral aspects and the results of their work. It seems that the existing shortcomings could be compensated to some extent by introducing proper programmes for educating teachers .
