Morality in Education -Professor Dr. Ravindra Kumar

Morality is not merely a subject of preaching. Rather, it is a subject of practice. Morality leads one towards righteous acts. It accords protection and dynamism to human values. Performing duties or discharging responsibilities is the acid test of morality. If one performs his duties well, he discharges his responsibilities towards the society, the nation and humanity as a whole, he, in fact, follows the path of ethics; therefore, he practices morality in true sense of the word. The role of morality in the process of education, which is the manifestation and development of one’s virtues, already within and on the basis of them his all-round growth, is vital. Without morality one cannot grow tall in ethical height and, thus, cannot proceed on the right way. In such a situation, he will fail in performing duties justifiably; therefore, education acquired by him is worth nothing. Familiarity with the significance of moral values is necessary for those all who are connected at any level of the process of education. Moreover, it is their foremost duty that they found the process of education on the strong base of morality to make it worthy, real and result-oriented.
