Ethical Education By B. Ramalakshumma


Now-a-days, the root cause of crime, violence, sufferings, unrest is lack of observance of ethical values among civic populations, groups, societies and nations. Human beings are blessed with the highest brain development but because of lack of global values like- human values, sympathy, empathy, universal brotherhood societies are no more peaceful these days. Selfishness, domination, superiority feeling is common among people and nations leading to erosion of values. Any system, organization cannot be run without certain minimum basic values, rules and regulations, ethical code and the like and same applies to human beings too. So, it is time the concept of ethics and values are introduced to students from Primary education either as a separate subject as “Ethical Education” or as part of subjects already existing. The suggested topics are: Ethical values, ethical code of conduct, family relations, human bondages, importance of family, being as a unit, core values – Truth, goodness and beauty, equality, humanity, human values, universal brotherhood, protection and support of weaker and sensitive sections of society- children, handicapped/ differently able etc. Unless ethical education is made mandatory, these values cannot be inculcated in children – the future citizens of the world. Ethical education is going to play a crucial role in the existence of humanity itself.
