Moral values should be part of our education system

Holistic development of an individual is incomplete if moral values are neglected. Recent increase in the number of assault cases and increasing number of old people home are pointing fingers towards wrong in the society and its mindset. Most of the people do not have any respect for elders and females, speaking lies has become their habit and there is corruption and jealousy everywhere depleting the much desired moral values. But what are the moral values? Do you think moral values are directly related to the sort of clothes we wear and type of life we spend? I do not think so. I personally feel that if you do not indulge in any kind of bad habit, if you respect your elders and females, if you are true to everyone, if you are a good citizen and a human being in every sense then you are a moral person. To be a moral person every belief and thought should be strong and determined. We must have the courage to do right and fight for the right.

One must be trained in the same from the beginning of life. Therefore moral values must be taught and should be an indispensable part of our education system. Teachers should train every child for his or her future responsibilities. Apart from education, schools should indulge in activities to generate the feeling of brotherhood and love. Schools must participate in social causes through schools kids.

Apart from teachers and schools, parents must play an active role in teaching moral values to their children. As society around us is dishonest to a great extent so expecting too much just from institutions won’t solve the problem. Students must be taught the importance of honesty, hard work, respect for others, co-operation, and forgiveness. Parents must keep this in mind that children look upon their parents and consider them as their role model. They should display and set an example of a disciplined life.

Experts do believe that lack of moral value is the major cause of unrest and deteriorating condition of India. Restlessness among youth is the major cause of crime. Openness, easy access to unwanted elements and lack of self control are becoming bad components of our society. Youth must be directed and shown a right path. Education must focus on the all round development of a child because moral values help in making complete human beings not just individuals. It prepares them for their future role. Even if analyzed properly then lack of moral value is the root cause of corruption. When our own vested interests surpass the societal good then such things happen. We have to check this immediately because if the moral values keep on deteriorating then it may lead to the complete downfall of the society.

School managements must not make education system a business. Teachers should work hard to bring the desire change in the society as they mould the future. Hence school education system must include moral and social values.
