File Name: moral values and ethics in education .zip
Prior research on the impact of ethics education within the business curriculum has yielded mixed results. Although the impact is often found to be positive, it appears to be both small and short-lived. Interpretation of these results, however, is subject to important methodological limitations.
This awareness forces us to do all within our power for the preservation and advancement of life. The great enemy of morality has always been indifference. Today's muddle of lesson plans, meetings, new curricula, specialization and restrictions leaves teachers and administrators little time for teaching honesty, ethics, values or integrity.
In fact, many educators believe that these topics are better covered by religious teachings. However, unlike religion which is based on faith and beliefs, ethics is more a "system of principles of conduct for man as a social being …" 4 and deals with the realm of actualities. Other educators believe that values must be instilled by parents.
However, during the most developmental period of a child's life, the role of the teacher is paramount. Although students are told not to cheat on exams, most other value comments are ignored.
Even comments regarding cheating are shrouded in fear, embarrassment and getting caught, and not on character development and lofty principles. Many high school students' graduate having disrespect for order, authority justice or values. These students learn many of these characters through peer pressure and ethical laziness on the part of instructors. These scientists, future leaders, parents and politicians are, in many ways, devoid of ethical consciousness. Replacing time-honored values are indecency, snobbishness, and a disrespect for values.
If it affected only the older people, that is, those whose age would presuppose some lingering fragments of gray matter--somewhat atrophied it is true-the condition would not be so serious. Time and a series of first-class funerals, more or less continued, would gradually effect a cure.
But the young, by heredity and environment, by precept and example, are being rapidly imbued with the same spirit. Our boys and girls have become infected with the identical virus, and one of the most important problems that confront a genuine educator today is how to combat this widespread disaffection. Egalitarianism means that faculties have lost self-confidence to tell students what it is they ought to learn. These two forces press higher education in the same direction. These programs comprised 55 percent of requirements in to be reduced by the s to only 33 percent.
Bork showed in the final chapter of his book, that there has been for nearly years a constant decline of educational stringency and logic revealed through fewer assignments, the lack of quality work, poorer curriculum, and less work in completing educational goals.
The ability to work hard, to persevere in exacting tasks, and to master detail is all critical in determining individual achievement.
John Locke stated that a child's mind is a blank slate or tabula rasa. Emphasis on learning should be placed on four major cornerstones: wisdom, virtue, breeding and learning. These teachings based on Puritan and Victorian ethics were beneficial in that they directed the student toward lofty goals and a more spiritual viewpoint.
However, the discipline in teaching these goals was often based on misguided obedience to the teacher and total authority. All power was taken from the student and in many cases the child's will, individuality and spirit were crushed. In vogue, was the theory as put forth by noted educator Herbert Spence: the first steps in self-control are taken at the behest of immediate consequences, be these either pleasant or painful.
Until mind can look into the future and govern adjustment with reference to remote ends, the primitive pleasure-pain economy will and must be the only guide. Civilization imposes requirements the true value of which cannot be comprehended in the narrow span of the primitive mind. To wait until natural consequences shall correct misdemeanors is impossible under these conditions. They included: authority, effective discipline, tact, persistence, scholarship, justice, good 9 Ibid.
Although teachers see the importance of discipline as it relates to ethics, many also realized that students must be provided with ways to create an inner barometer, using reason, which would strive to direct children toward ethical living. According to James L.
Hughes:Rational men and women speak no longer audaciously of breaking a child's will. They aim to aid in giving the child wisdom commensurate with his increasing power, and to keep him occupied, as far as possible, in the execution of his own plans, so that his will may grow strong and controlling by directing his own powers in the achievement of his own purposes. A self-active will is the supreme element that gives real value to character. Such a will cannot be developed by subordination; it does develop by cooperation and partnership… 21According to this philosophy, the right of a child, and the fullest opportunity to have a life of his own, is a right which should be sacredly respected by his parents.
Hughes believes that it is essential to a child's true growth in character. In an issue of Educational Review, Dr. Gopalan of Madras Christian College India suggested that educators establish a moral and ethical values course for university students. Most behavior is, however, well established before college entry. Instilling moral responsibility should therefore be assimilated into curricula throughout the lower grades.
These workbooks aid in assisting student to learn ethics as they learn the discipline of world history. Penn State" Graduate School has developed priorities toward developing commitment to ethics guidelines in their practices. Lindgren notes: As an educator, an individual [must be] aware of the social spheres which influence his decisions concerning school policy and those actions which directly influence his students.
At the same time, … [he] should do so with love and kindness. Teachers, through their actions inside and outside the classroom should strive to live a moral life. This is not done by merely attending church on Sundays and believing in an all powerful being but by performing daily, those actions which denote love, virtue, nobility, honesty and understanding.
With widely differing political, social and cultural views, such a task is not easy. The benefits, however, would be enormous.
First, man is inherently evil. Without the intervention of a spiritual entity God man will, if given the choice between evil and good, usually choose evil.
Second, man is basically good. He, will in time, with guidance and direction, evolve into a "perfect" god-like creature. Third, some philosophers believe man, as a natural being, will do wrong if given the opportunity. According to this philosophy, man has good intentions but should be trained to choose good over evil. A child as a 'natural being' has the tendency to do wrong, if given the chance and will continue to do so unless corrected for his failures. This is not to say, however, that man is mean, selfish, sinful and indifferent to the truth, but rather that he is, due to his nature, more willing to take the easy path of existence.
It is only during severe crises that the best of man's nature reveals itself in all its glory and brilliance. The corruption of man's nature does not compel him to follow evil, because God has supernaturally restored a measure of free will within every man. Man as a being of God has the liberty to choose good or evil. An individual is, therefore, responsible for his actions, not only to his fellowmen, but also to his Creator. Value teaching should not be aimed at creating perfect individuals but rather ones that perceive right and wrong and can choose those values society and environment deem correct and proper.
True education attacks wickedness and bigotry and instills justice, mercy and truth. Teachers must emphasize the importance of showing mercy. Additionally, it is the role of the educator to assist pupils in developing critical thinking and motivate learning, even at an early age. It is these principles which we should aspire to develop in the 21 st century. It is of upmost importance that moral education be structured so pupils can receive intellectual training in the social skills of perception communication and identifying.
Any society achieving brilliance without conscience is dangerous. Values in the 21 st CenturyUnless good values and morals are taught, and pupils trained in understanding ethical concepts, brilliant and inquisitive minds will be swayed toward the "darker side" of society.
An individual who possesses many degrees and awards but has learned neither ethics nor integrity is still like a small child and deserves no respect. ResponsibilityAlthough teachers should provide ethical education, this does not always indicate making decisions or supplying laws of do and don't.
Rather, ethical training denotes that the pupil is taught that integrity is behavior which is reliable and individualized and is foremost to the betterment of one's self and community.
Society, then is forced to judge by common report, and though it may often judge wrongly, it generally errs on the safe side. One must "establish fixed principles of benevolence, justice, truthfulness. In encouraging this type of consciousness, the educator should transmit the information which the pupil has learned to specific situations that have moral meaning. In , Robert Heron Bork write that regarding his opinion of America's swing toward liberalization and the terrible effect it was having on values and morality.

WHAT IS VALUES EDUCATION?
Dignity means respect for humanity. Teachers must respect every person, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender diversity, appearance, age, religion, social standing, origin, opinions, abilities and achievements. Fairness is important both when encountering individual learners and groups but also in the work community. Fairness involves in particular promoting equality and non-discrimination and avoiding favouritism. Teachers commit to the standards and ethics of their work. Teachers manage their duties responsibly.
These virtues are a good description of what an ethical teacher should be, but the use of these virtues can be a difficult task when a teacher is faced with so many unpredictable situations in the classroom and in the school system. Ethical knowledge is an intrinsic feature of awareness between moral and ethical principles. Embodying ethical knowledge gives the teacher the ability to practice their teaching skills with morals and ethics and not just viewing their job as being teaching only. It goes beyond the curriculum, assessment and technical conditions of the profession. There are many ways to show how a teacher can demonstrate their ethical knowledge, but a teacher can only do but so much to implement moral and ethical behavior on a daily basis.

Teacher’s values and ethical principles
Only a handful of educational theorists hold the view that if only the adult world would get out of the way, children would ripen into fully realized people. Most thinkers, educational practitioners, and parents acknowledge that children are born helpless and need the care and guidance of adults into their teens and often beyond. More specifically, children need to learn how to live harmoniously in society. Historically, the mission of schools has been to develop in the young both the intellectual and the moral virtues. Concern for the moral virtues, such as honesty, responsibility, and respect for others, is the domain of moral education.
