Do we need Values-based curriculum when we can modify Faith-based curriculum ? Every resource I have come upon during my research still quotes the ‘Golden Rule’,which for the unfamiliar is ‘Do unto others as you want others to do unto you‘, and has it’s origin linked to one of the major world religions (Christianity).
Intuitively, I think that a Faith + Ethics component or learning philosophy that promotes positive human values is an adequate solution in lieu of Values-based Education.
That’s my working hypothesis. As I continue to research and develop a teachers’ guide to character development and global citizenship in the classroom, I look forward to gathering more facts and figures to support or defeat this hypothesis.
