Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The complexity of American society has left schools reeling from new roles and re-examination of the old ones. Dramatic social changes have burdened the schools with responsibilities traditionally left to the family and its support systems. Among the revisited roles comes the task of determining whether values should be taught in our schools. There appears to be a strong belief that schools and families no longer teach a common set of values or ethical principles that appear necessary for a society to sustain a common universally accepted system of governance. What, then, is the role of schools in preparing individuals with those values that help them live and work in a complex and culturally diverse society?
