A Comparative Study of Value Orientation of Higher Secondary School Students
Aim of Education is to develop the total personality of a person. Virtually all people can identify goals they want to accomplish, things they would like to change and things they would like to achieve. However, most people also realize that putting these plans into action is not quite so simple. Values education can take place at home, as well as in schools, colleges, universities, jails and voluntary youth organisations. There are two main approaches to values education, some see it as inculcating or transmitting a set of values which often come from societal or religious rules or cultural ethics while others see it as a type of Socratic dialogue where people are gradually brought to their own realization of what is good behaviour for themselves and their community. In this study and attempts has been made to study the effect of gender and standard of value orientation of higher secondary school level students.120 students from the xi and xii class of Gujarati medium higher secondary schools in Ahmadabad were chosen as a sample. Value orientation scale was administrated and the result were evaluated and analyzed by considering appropriate statistical measure like mean, S.D., and t-value .The analysis reveals that the t –value was significant in case of Standard. So the researcher has rejected the null hypothesis. Value orientations of xii standard students are high than xi standard students and Gender had no effect on value orientation education.
