Human Values and Education

 
S L Goel (Author) Aruna Goel (Author)
Synopsis Value are principles which direct our actions and activities. They are in-built in our society common to no only all the communities but also to all religions at all times. These values, if deteriorated will hasten or accelerate the breakdown of family, society and nation as a whole. The philosophy about values is that value should help any one to seek the real knowledge and goal of life in a righteous manner. It is equally important to ensure that the youth are equipped with core values needed to live as responsible citizens in complex democratic societies. There is growing recognition that many adolescents are not sufficiently prepared to deal with the demands of modern society. Traditional mechanisms for passing on lifeskills, (e.g. family, community role models, cultural traditions) may no longer be adequate in many communities. The reasons given for this include the weakening of traditional support structures as urbanization breaks up the extended family. There is also the power of the media in shaping the development of youth and the rapid social changes that make the lives of young people, their expectations, values and opportunities so different from that of their parents. In addition, adolescents face increasing risks to their health and development, such as HIV/AIDS, drug abuse, stress, violence and suicides. How can we overcome these problems of 21st century. The answer is the imparting of lifeskills education with values as the most important ingredient. We have tried in this book to look at human values and values education in a broader perspective which can lay the foundation of a society having equity and justice as its motto. In addition, we have tried to explain some individual values to understand their significance. The book has been divided into 20 chapters.
