Educational Values: Meaning, Objectives and Sources Meaning of Educational Values:

Education has the greatest value. All those activities that are good, useful and valuable from educational point of view are considered as educational values. Education has its aims to modify the nature of the educand and not merely to supply a certain amount of knowledge.

According to J. Ruskin, “Education does not mean teaching people to know that they do not know, it means teaching them to behave as they do not behave”. Thus, the ultimate aim of education is to achieve good life.

Aims are an end in themselves and values are the product. For achieving any goal or objective we devise certain methods to achieve it and when we are able to achieve for reach the goal we call it values. Thus, in the field of education values are the results that we actually obtain.
