WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO INSTIL GOOD MORAL VALUES INTO STUDENTS?
It is said that in the hands of students lie the future of nations. Nevertheless, many people are anxious about the capability of the young to live for the fulfillment of that hope, an ignited doubt because of dwindling values among the youth. This gives rise to the importance of instilling good moral values into them.
No one can deny the fact that there have been several news reports about young people who are involved in violence or crimes such as addiction or killing, which proves that juvenile delinquency is rampant. In relation to this, it is an urgent need that this matter should be paid attention to and tackled to reduce crime rate concerning students and the consequences it brings. At home and schools, students are taught knowledge in various fields of studies. If this is coupled with teachings that mold their character to become law abiding and morally-upright citizens, they will understand the significant difference they can contribute to make the world a peaceful place to live in.
In addition, it is undoubtedly inevitable that the next leaders will come from young learners of today’s generation. How great the world would be if the future leaders who rise up are not only equipped and empowered in their skills but also individuals who possess good character because they uphold good moral values.
Given these points, we can therefore state that values are as equally important as the most important things on earth. Students have to be built with morally-acceptable values because in them is the power to shape posterity, that they not just shine for themselves but for others to see.
