Values-based Education (VbE) is a process (education) that enables children to develop their personal capacity to be “self-leaders”, thereby developing their social capacity to affect society positively.
To achieve this schools need to encourage activities that expand children’s positive innate capacities.
Activities which encourage this focus on the:
- development of ethical intelligence through a values vocabulary
- development of reflective practices
- knowledge of the ‘inner curriculum’ i.e. how my brain/mind works and how I (the Self) can be responsible for its development
The above, in the context of adults being willing to model positive values.
