About the Book :

The Series on Practical and Professional Ethics is an outcome of major research project funded by the U.G.C. in which the task of resolving some value-laden practical problems troubling the professionals and the non-professionals in India was undertaken. Apart from clarifying the nature, tasks and interrelation of practical and professional ethics, volume one clarifies the nature of ethical or value-laden practical problems such as Environmental, Biomedical, Educational, Economic and Business and Socio-Political Ethics.
This volume deals with the nature analysis and aims of education, educating, teaching and training. Analysing the nature of ethics, especially educational ethics, it offers an elaborate discussion on the justification of educational ethics as a sensible and valuable study within ethics, showing how the normative, meta-ethical, value and virtue ethical, and practical reflections have relevance in the field of educational ethics. The book also considers the way in which some important value-laden educational problems in India, such as privatization of education, sex education, banning corporal punishment to students, medium of instruction in educational institutions and spiritual/religious indoctrination as the basis of value-based education should be resolved.
