teach skill and ethical at the same time
Views differ greatly when it comes to the issue that whether schools have the responsibility to teach academic skills but have no responsibility to teach ethical and social values. Because of personal trait, educational background, individual experience, different occupation, and emotional concern, people may hold various points of view. That is to say there is no general opinion to this statement. In my position, I incline to disagree with this assertion for the following reasons.
First of all, both the academic skills and the ethical and social values are important for students. If students who have academic skills without ethical and social values, they will be the most horrible offenders. Because the students possess knowledge which may let them have the opportunity to do more complex crimes, the students may do the terrible wrong thing. Any academic skills with the good side and bad side, hence, the school has the responsibility to teach student use these skills to do the right thing.
In addition, on the one hand, the ethical and social values can not learn in one day, and they have to cultivate for a long time. On the other hand, the school should teach the ethical and social values with the academic skills, letting the academic skills bring out the biggest effect. For these reasons, it is essential to rely on school. If the school just teach the academic skills but neglect the ethical and social values, it will make the big fault line between technology and human discipline.
In summary, people are divided over the issue that whether schools should be responsible only for teaching academic skills and not for teaching ethical and social values. However, on the basis of the preceding paragraph, it is most reasonable for me to conclude that the school should teach both the academic skills and the ethical and social values at the same time. It is important to teach students that how to use their knowledge in the right thing and to improve society better.
