Lack of meaningful educational context for ethical decisions

Other Names:
Inadequate values education
Overemphasis on theories in education

Education today is aimed at the acquisition of facts and skills and does not provide the experience of ambiguity necessary in the individual's struggle to develop an ethical posture. Rather, ethics has become so much the province of the individual that each person's posture is developed alone, without reference to the larger society or to the wisdom of the past in any organized form.
