Presented is study of moral ethical dimension as system formatting component of educational and breeding process. The problem is more urgent today, than ever before, since there are too many examples of teachers’ unethical behavior both in and out of classroom. The article discusses different aspects of the problem (how it is represented in legal documents, what theoretical foundation it is based on, how basic ethical principles work in practice, etc.). The research indicate, that though discussions of teachers’ ethical responsibilities have a long history and are founded on profound legal and methodological basis of pedagogical practice, there is a gap between the obvious necessity for teachers’ conscious ethical behavior and current situation in teaching practice. The study suggests possible causes of such and ways to it’s overcoming.

Key words: education, educational and breeding process, pedagogical ethics, students, teacher, moral values.
