Secular Values and Curriculum: Perspectives and Prospects

Aejaz Masih (Author)
Synopsis Curriculum is the most explicit path through which the ideals of education can be achieved. How far is the national goal of inculating secular values, which has been the common concern of all national policies on education and of different commissions and committees set up by the Government of India, among all the students belonging to different religion and cultural? This is very crucial question because the answer to this question will decide whether the curriculum is effective or ineffective to achieve this national ideal. In the present book the answer to this crucial question is being traced. Besides, the empirical findings the book provides a sound conceptual background of secularism and secular values and has operationalized them in Indian context. It has also tried to present the relevance of secular values for a religions pluralist society like ours in an objective way. In the last chapter of the book a conceptual model for imparting secular values through curriculum is also suggested. Students during the pre-service teachers training may be exposed to such models so that they can act as inculcate of secular values in actual classroom.
