Before keeping my views on value education, lets first start with defining what is value education. “Value education” is defined as the process in which people give value to the other peoples.
Giving value to the other people can take place in any organization in which people help or ARE given value by the other people, who can be senior in age/group in order to obtain the maximum output from the work. Value education can be done in schools, colleges, industries, government organizations etc. Hence value education can be stated as opportunity given to young people to initiate the value in order to achieve the growth towards the right direction.
The value education is initiated in different parts of the world. Presently the Australian government is funding the schools to initiate the value education in order to attain maximum capabilities out from the student. In India also, the department of human and resource development are seeking various measures in order to implement value education in various states of the country. In countries like Japan and Singapore there is a continuous promotion of moral education, given by a large number of teachers to the students of both primary and secondary level. In many parts of Singapore the coaching institutes have made it compulsory to teach the moral values and ethics.
In today’s fast moving world it seems as if man have compromised their value and ethics and due to which many of them loose their character and integrity and move towards the path of crime. It is very important to teach the young and innocent minds because these minds can be molded into any shapes. So its important to give them correct direction.
At last i would like to conclude that besides the book syllabus the student should also be taught about Values, Morals and Ethics.
