There is a special need today for evolving a new system of education in India which must be in tune with our major values of national tradition and integration.This system can only nourish and strengthen our national consciousness.At school level, the syllabus should include folk tales.
Moral education is most successful when it is passive and indirect.
Our indifference to morality is clear from the widespread corruption in our society.
Before 1976, education was the exclusive responsibility of the states.
By the constitutional amendment of 1976, education was included in the Concurrent List.
It is a law that we ourselves can understand and choose for our guidance because we see that it is good sense to do.
Broadly morality means honesty of character, fairness in attitude, absence of evils like hatred, jealously, greed, telling lies, etc.According to the parliamentary standing committee on human resources Development the concerted efforts made during the last six decades have failed to achieve the desired results.Well chalked out plans and strategies for making our education value oriented still remain on paper.It aims to adjust the rhythm of the individual life with the rhythm of the society.This adjustment involves strengthening of one character and consolidation of the moral fiber.Today our education system lacks these moral standards.From ethical point of view human actions can be judged as good or bad right or wrong moral or immoral.It is a fact that today the educational system has failed to inculcate in young people moral values.Despite the phenomenal increase in the number of educational institutions, there has been a deterioration of human values in our society.Charity, sympathy, selfless service, helping others and such other qualities are found only in a few people nodes.This is matter of great concern of reductionists, not only in India but all over the world.
