The Nature of Values Education in Southeast Asia.
Thomas, R. Murray
In recent years, concern in several Southeast Asian nations about the deterioration of values within their societies has resulted in renewed efforts to teach values by means of special courses in the schools. This paper compares the current programs of values education in four of the nations: Indonesia, Malaysia, the Phillipines, and Singapore. The comparison centers on the motives behind efforts to improve values education, types of values emphasized, strategies for promoting the values, and problems encountered in such educational programs. Historical and statistical data on each of the four countries provide a setting within which official statements concerning moral education programs' particular topics undergo scrutiny. (Contains 2 tables and 23 references.) (Author/SG)
