Values and Moral Education
Many stakeholders in education tend to think that Values and Moral Education is not as important as education in Science and Mathematics. The current form of basic (elementary and high school) education in the Philippines lends support to this observation as Values and Moral Education in the basic education curriculum is not an independent subject like Science and Math. Though teachers are advised to include teaching of values in Science and Math, it may be said that there is no secured place for Values and Moral Education in the current basic education in the Philippines. For this reason, one of the issues that this seminar aims to address is whether Values and Moral Education is, indeed, a valuable area of study in the context of formal schooling and whether it deserves to be treated as an independent subject like Science and Math. Another issue is whether moral reasoning in Values and Moral Education is relevant in turning out graduates who could contribute in nation building. How ought we to teach Values and Moral Education as a subject on evaluative reasoning is another problem that needs deeper attention. It is hoped that the possible answers that may be given to the surrounding issues on Values and Moral Education may give us a clearer idea as to what should be its aims, content, and pedagogy.
