The idea of good and education have been symbiotically linked..
Moral Good and Education
- Moral good has basically two dimensions: common good and individual good.
- The common good involves human values.
- These values are integral to the Constitution and find their mention in the draft National Education Policy (NEP) of 2019.
- These values need to be promoted through education..
- The passage to dissemination of such values does not seem to be safe.
- This is because we are less concerned about restoring the public schools and
- This is evident in the case of parents moving to private schools and coaching centres.
- We need to eliminate the social distance in the social relations.
- The elimination of structural inequality is required.
- The expansion of infrastructure for accessibility is important..
- Ethics is crucial for orienting those in the education system towards the realisation of these proclaimed values.
