Values in Search of Education


  • Sheth N R


This paper is based on an amateur research effort to understand how social values are transmitted through non-formal education. The point of departure for the study lies in some currently expressed views on deterioration of values in society with serious implications for human survival and welfare. The nature of values as a part of social reality makes it difficult and hazardous to identify and observe them in an objective study. Values would have to be chosen and examined somewhat arbitrarily. In such an arbitrary framework of values, the author has described the value education component of the activities of three projects in socio-economic development. The description is followed by some tentative thoughts on education in values. At the end, some candid questions are raised on the theme of the paper.
