Moral Education in America is written for educators, counselors and others involved in teaching and administrative roles, such as parents, business leaders and public officials. It concerns a new moral attitude in America that has had a substantial impact in education and society at large. It is causing us to lose sight of some important fundamentals that affect learning and behavior. Moral principles that have been part of our culture for centuries, and have contributed enormously to the development of democracy and freedom in America, are being de-emphasized. It is essential that a moral framework be re-established in formal education and other teaching venues for the benefit of the entire society. Can this be done in our age of individualism and multiculturalism? The author believes it can and will be done as more people become aware of the dangers of moral ignorance.
"Arjun grew up in a simple family. He had two big brothers. Since childhood he’d had a helping nature. One day, he was playing football near his rented house with his friend. He was around 7 to 8 years old at that time. Suddenly, the ball rolled towards the pond; the pond was full of floating grass and he saw something moving. He found out that it was a child around 5 years old, struggling for her life. He knelt on the ground and held the arm of the girl. He put all his efforts to save her life. He didn’t have any idea about what he was doing as he could barely swim at that time. His father left him when he was 14 years old and it was very hard for his mother to accept that her husband had suddenly passed away. His mother and father didn't have a government or a private job. His mother went through some health issues after her husband passed away. His mother found it very difficult to let all of her sons study. He and his two brothers were very close in age, therefore he could not get any financial support or advice for his career. He started working in the field, helping his mother as well. He went to school when he got time. Through the grace of god he was able to study further. He did a part time job both in and outside the university and was able to finance his studies. Finally, in 2009, he completed his Masters of Science in Yoga from Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana, Bangalore, India."
