One of the fundamental goals of education is to impart culture and values across the generations. Value education, is generally understood to cut across the curriculum and is appropriately integrated into all courses as well as into the extracurricular activities and ethos of schools. Today, the true challenge of value education remains the development of a universal conscience that puts human rights, pluralist democracy and the equality of all human beings as the most important values that we may share. This book describes the need and importance of value education and education for human rights in the existing social scenario. It will be of interest to teachers, teacher educators and parents and will be appreciated by all who are concerned with the cause of value education.
