Thornton and Reid applied Kolhberg’s research and found that some criminals had immature moral reasoning, this had implications for the judicial system. Also for behavioural policies in schools, which need to be appropriate to a child’s level of moral reasoning .

He set up cluster schools with Carol Gilligan (also called 'just' communities') to facilitate moral development by giving students power to resolve disputes (also set one up in a prison)..
