“No other subject taught in school is as important as Moral Science”
For the Motion
In today’s rat race values are eroding fast. There is a total decadence in social and moral values. Children go to school daily thinking how to scale heights they will reach, how rich education can make them. In today’s cut throat competition even the parents instruct their wards that they should top in the class.
Childhood is very impressionable age. The mind is like soft wax, so whatever one is taught at a tender age it leaves a deep impression. Therefore, moral science must be made a compulsory subject in school curriculum. It is also a science of human soul, it’s a mirror of one’s involved mind, one’s ethics. Moral science inculcate values in mankind and value education is very vital from childhood.
Moreover, children spend so much of their precious time in schools. Therefore comma schools should shoulder the responsibility of imparting moral values to them. In order to make them self reliant, confident and responsible citizens, they need to be imparted with value based education, which only Moral Science can do. After all today’s child is tomorrow’s citizen.
Moral science is not a religion based subject. Raja it eliminates fanaticism, supervision and violence. It preaches “ Love all Serve all.” this value is lacking in today’s generation. It helps child to pay heed to his home science and not to be late away by worldly show. However, theoretical knowledge is not enough. Teachers should make their life exemplary to their students. The lives of great Patriots and spiritual leaders must be brought to the forefront. Only moral science can stem the tide of rapid value erosion and motivate the students towards a healthy life. As a child is then trained emotionally comma mentally and physically how to be a responsible citizen or a good son or a daughter. They can resist wrong peer pressure, intolerance and through right conduct lead forward their Nation.
Furthermore, moral science helps a person to become a better human being. One becomes more understanding, patient, pious, decent and wise. One Learns to do things without any selfish motives. Pleasure is derived in doing things for others as one feel that he or she is doing it for good. The end result is that the world can become better and happier place to live in. Peace and containment can be found.
Therefore there can be no doubt about the fact that no other subject taught in school is as important as moral science. Let the light of spirituality shine through the eyes of the little ones.
Against the Motion
I stand before you to contradict the statement, no other subject taught in school is as important as moral science. I would rather emphasize the point that knowledge is big power and this power comes through learning not nearly moral science but all other subjects even more seriously and intensively like Geography would unfold the mysteries of different regions on the globe. The study of applied science like maths, Chemistry, Physics, Biology will unravel the past potentialities that can enrich our lives and resolve many mysteries about the atom and element, land and sky, stars and planets. Where is not much effort is required to learn ethics and morality, much mental labour is involved in learning subjects dealing with different branches of learning. Moral science teaches us about moral good and bad which can be learnt spontaneously and instinctively by watching the behaviour of the elders we come across daily.
The great advancement in technology in conquering time and space has been possible because much more Emphasis is being laid on the study of science. Now environmental study is being given more importance and it is made compulsory subject at all levels of school education. The global warming is threateningly increasing, poising unimaginable danger to our hard gained advancement in civilization More and more stress is being laid on protecting the environment and saving the fast depleting resources for our coming generation.
Men’s March to higher and higher ladder of Civilization will remain unhampered only if he gives himself a breast with the changing scenario and cokes with it on the strength of knowledge which and powers him to fight against any eventuality.
The harmonious development of a student’s personality can be possible with equal emphasis on the study of all subjects and not just becoming an island in to himself by simply meditating on God, life and death. Let such things be special subjects of religion and metaphysics to be taken up only by those exclusively interested in this particular branch. The more we learn about other subjects, the richer will be our knowledge.
