SHAPING THE MIND TOWARDS AN EFFECTIVE MORAL EDUCATION

Dr. Dipty Subba

Abstract


In a world which is primarily split between a few haves and majority of have-nots, tensions, diversities, self-centered vision, violence, terrorism and consumerism are creating a dreadful scenario of a bleeding world and blood splattered humanity. Many schools have been searching the reasons of depreciation in moral values and they have been working for developing good moral values among the students. The lack in moral values and the unhealthy attitudes of students is the main reason of having problems in several schools. They have been realizing the importance of moral education in school. Moral Values are the worthy ideals or principles that one follows to distinguish the right from the wrong. These ideals or virtues are considered worthy in building up the character of an individual. Moral responsibility is intimately related to our reactions to one another. Dealing with values and moral issues is recognized as integral part of teachers’ roles. Teacher has an important role in inculcating moral values in students. Schools therefore can play a bigger role as a child spends most active part of his day in school. Also, it has been seen that children are more compliant to the rules and regulations of the school than the society. In recent years, schools across the country have adopted several skill-development and classroom strategies that are related to character formation. How we live our life is the ultimate choice we make.
