Schooling-academic skills or social values or both
Education is necessary for survival these days.Parents ensure that their children get good education so they make a point to get their children into best schools.Therefore,schools play an important role in shaping up the children’s future.According to the speaker,Schools should be responsible only for teaching academic skills rather than teaching ethical and social values.In my opinion,the statement does not represent a meaning of a school.
Schools play an important role in a child’s life.This is the place where a child spends most of his childhood.Therefore,the school administration should not only take care of the academics but also teach them some social and ethical values.This will help them to grow into a good citizen thus a good society.Primary and secondary education should not ony include good academic teaching,sports,music,etc.,but also some activities like community services where children are given a chance to help the society,thus developing a feeling of compassion towards the people they are living with.
Some of the adverse effects of not having good values instituted in them are they turn into anti social elements.They get addicted to bad habits like drugs,shop lifting etc.,which are not a good signs for the future of this country.Some moral values needs to be incorprated into children so that they don’t take wrong steps in their life.
Youngsters especially teenagers are more prone to these kind of attractions.They dont have the ability to think properly if they dont know what is good and what is bad for them.All these problems can be solved by giving proper education,let them attend some moral science classes.Ultimately this will help them and inturn the society they are living in.
Finally,the statement doesns’t seem to be correct.Academic skills are not the only ones schools need to teach their children.They should also help them develop a compassion for fellow beings by giving them proper ethical and social values.In my view,the statement is not true.It should rather be all of the given qualities that schools should teach.
