KARIMNAGAR: Moral education means teaching children in a way that will help them develop as moral, civic and good-mannered citizens, said Commissioner of Police V Satyanarayana.
He was interacting with the students of Alphores e-techno school in Kothapalli on the outskirts of Karimnagar town as part of the Ethical Career Guidance (ECG) programme on November 17, 2022. Speaking on the occasion, the CP said that moral education covers a person’s character and morality and inculcates cultural and ethical values in him.
It must be a part of the school curriculum and it should be the duty and responsibility of teachers to develop humility, truthfulness, honesty, courtesy, tolerance and sacrifice in youth, he maintained. He also said that the school is the best place after home where children spend quality time and values can be inculcated best through their teachers. Education without values is directionless. So, moral education should be an essential part of the school curriculum, he pointed out.
Alphores educational institutions chairman V Narender Reddy said that in this age of information technology, there is a dire need for values which we must inculcate among our children. Appealing to the students to discourage the use of mobile phones, he said that the children should be taught moral values and ethics in their homes too. He said that the education learned in the classroom should be useful and help society.
