Teaching values in education in schools
This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2007 Conference, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. Teaching values to children first requires determining which values contribute to positive social behaviours. We cannot teach values without first creating a value based learning environment. There is a strong need for value education at all levels of education but it cant be over emphasized, especially in the present society. According to J .E Anderson (The Individual and Environment) we have educated and treated in relation to three worlds that make up the complete environment-the natural world, the social world and the value world .Obliviously all the natural and physical sciences belong to the first, all the humanistic studies to the second and all the ethical and religious to the third.
