Excessive consumerism, knowledge bang, value crisis, cultural lag, commercialization of services, extremism, terrorism, communalism and many more evils are disturbing our social systems. The greatest challenge before us today is: how to be a true human under modern conditions.
In this era of unprecedented social upsurge, teachers’ education should have greater and more scarifying involvement in negotiating the biased and sentimental views of life amid the teaching and the pupil community.
Value crisis in education and the need for fresh recharge of the entire system for a new lease of life with direly needed values seems to be the common cry of teachers, educationists, academicians, administrators and generally all those who have some conscience and have spent some time reflecting on the spiralling downfall of human values in National life.
The growing fear of the serious lacuna in terms of values in all educational programmes are being increasingly lamented over, more so that the said lacuna that had indented itself into national life in the past few decades is being brutally dimensionalised into communal riots and frenzy, religious hatred and violence, horrific killings and bloodshed and powerful lease of terror even in the campus of educational institutions.
It is fully apparent that education today has become a mechanical, information giving and examination oriented activity weaning the learners away from societal needs and realities as well as the niceties and refinements of personality, behaviour and character.
A considerable decline is discernable in moral, social, cultural and national ethos which have left ugly and unpleasant impressions on the Indian facade and resulted on a crisis of character and ethics at all levels of public and private life.
