Vocabulary Tricks Part 17: Moral Education

Published on Monday, February 13, 2017
There is a dire need to evolve a new education system to inculcate moral values in students. Moral education can nourish our national consciousness. Education has a great role in fostering the personality by continuously developing innate qualities.
Morality means being honest and renunciation of jealousy, hatred, and lies. But today people are preoccupied in pursuit of material things. There is continuous deterioration of moral values. The concerted efforts made to imbibe moral values in the last decades showed no results.
There is a need to start at a grassroots level. Moral education is more successful if it is indirect, rather than coercive.
