Education For Values
Values of education are the same as values of life. Values are the moral aspect of a culture. A valueless society is a society of savage people. The virtues or values like patience, wisdom, adjustment, realistic approach, learning from failure, love peace etc. come to use in real life. All these virtues make us important, respectable and useful. Education without values is a dull exercise. Value education has to be subsumed in education for the holistic development of students in a systematic and fucused way. But you should remember that values are meaningful only if you practise them. People may listen to what you say but they will believe what you do. Values are also guiding principles of life. Value oriented education implies of a system which attempts to balance science and technology with ethics and religion. It is rightly said that teaching for values is not like teaching any other subject. It is about teaching the learners as to how to think about something, to reflect, critically evaluate and appreciate one's own values and those of others.Thus we know that values are determined by the standard of right or wrong.
