Values and Education

Abstract

The American people believe strongly in higher education's responsibility toward fashioning a more humane perspective on life, and they are calling for a reordering of educational priorities with a strong emphasis on human values.

Values education shows how the information came to be while at the same time demanding that the information be scrutinized from a variety of angles, and challenged in an organized, rational way. The object is to engage more than simply the surface of the student's awareness. Education in values aims to challenge the student's beliefs by providing a classroom experience which makes possible the testing of values. The curriculum emphasizes encouraging and helping students to make decisions on issues and problems that in some way impinge on the quality of life surrounding them.
