Morality isn’t always taught through education. But even if children were to learn morality in the classroom, it is a parent’s job to teach right from wrong. The more moral we are, the better our life will be.
Teaching morals shouldn’t be just a parental concern and responsibility, it should also be a common responsibility. Since children spend so much time in school, it is important schools reinforce the morals children are taught by their parents, assuming parents are teaching their children morals.
Schools don’t raise awareness on compassion, tolerance and empathy as well as other initiatives, including how to communicate and practice such values in everyday life. Schools often teach facts and figures, but may fail to encompass any real method of learning that help a student take their first steps into the world.
As children we should be made aware of our moral compass. Children should be taught morality by their parents and then it should be reinforced through education, in a way that allows them to think for themselves.
Schools sadly don’t have the time or resources, to continually re-evaluate morality, but it’s easy to see why these morality is crucial in everyday life.
