Value Education: Past And Present
This paper attempts to compare the concept of value education in modern India and the concept of value education in ancient India. At a practical level value education ensures that the school fulfils the aim of the national curriculum: to promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and prepare them all for the experiences of life. At a philosophical level, the answer lies in a deep conviction about the purposes of education. Defining value education as education itself, the author advocates the need of teachers and elders as an agent for social change. It is required to modify the teacher training programmes to equip the teacher to deliver the quality of values as per the situation and explore the process by which children develop values essential for living in the society. Teachers need to be trained to create situations and be imaginative to reflect on that situation by making students aware of values and highlighting its need. Key words: values, past, present, Value Education, Human Values, Cultural Development
