Moral education as one of the most important pillars of an educational system contributes greatly to orientation to that system. Thus, the view according to which we choose to face moral issues founds the educational system in a completely decisive way. Therefore, moral education is not only a specific and separate educational background and sphere, but, in a sense, it shows the depth and essence of the education system. Virtue-oriented ethics as an alternative to act-oriented moral systems can provide a different perspective on our understanding of moral issues and can also make the foundation of moral education undergo a fundamental transformation. This paper aims to analyze and formulate this role in the macro educational system to determine that virtue-oriented moral education can be a different framework for the totality of educational system. In this paper, in one hand, we seek to address virtue ethics philosophically and theoretically in terms of its effectiveness on the educational system, and, on the other hand, just a certain aspect of this system should not be considered, but the effectiveness of ethics on the totality of educational system should be investigated. The paper is concluded with the approach: the virtue-oriented moral education will basically create a different attitude to moral education, because many of the foundations of moral education in the formal educational system are based on a rule-based and external approach, which deprives the leaners of forming internal moral structures. In the virtue-oriented moral education, the moral education will aim to pursue moral perfection in the various aspects of the learners’ life, and not just to persuade them to do their homework.
