Human resources are a key aspect in the development of a nation. One of the human resources that are considered important is the younger generation. The role of young people as very important in the context of development in Bangladesh as an independent country. The attitudes can be realized as putting unity and the safety of the nation and country above personal interests, do not give up easily spirited renewal, and so on. Human resource development can be done through education of the family, school, and community. However, the younger generation is a cadre of development that are still potential, so it needs to be nurtured and developed in a focused and sustained through school educational institutions.Today, the very high demands of the times, people who are not qualified will be hard to get a job. One attempt to get a job or a decent life with take-up highest education. In the current era, people swarmed to get an education. Parents are willing to spend money to send their children to prestigious schools or favorite colleges, so their children’s future with a good education will get a good life anyway. It is one of the evidences, that education is very important. However, the assumption that amends in Bangladeshi society, namely education just to get a job, even though the benefits of education are not just to getting a job but is very broad, almost covering all aspects of life.While the goal of universal elementary education is a long way from being achieved, and affects the condition of education among children, even adult illiteracy has effects on them. Statistics have shown that children of uneducated mothers are more prone to problems like malnutrition and anemia. Illiterate adults are also less likely to send their children to school. Education is, in all probability, the most influential tool required to break the vicious intergenerational cycle of abuse, malnutrition, poverty and oppression. Literacy thus requires a lot of attention. However, education is a process that passes off since a person was a child to reach maturity think or adulthood. Education is something that cannot be separated from human life. Education was seen as the process of acquiring knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, and other behavioral aspects to every generation. These efforts have been done entirely by the forces of society. Almost everything we learn is the result of our relationships with other people, whether at home, school, office, and others. Besides, wherever we are, we are going to learn and acquire knowledge.Through education, it will arise in a person to compete and motivate themselves to be better in every aspect of life. Some functions of education, among others, to develop and shape the personality, cultural transmission, social integration, innovation, and pre-allocation of labor. However, School as a formal institution implementation of education is the primary role holder of channelization science to students. The school is one educational center that expected to educate the nation, develop a human into the faithful, and useful to the nation and the country. One of the functions of the school is responsible for bringing about development according to valid regulations. Such as teaching materials are cognitive and guidance to affective aspects of students.Education in schools contains several activities including teaching, guidance, and training. Where the three activities should be run correctly, so that will birth a whole human being, intelligent and moralist, be able to survive with decent, and be able to adapt to the environment and changing of times that ongoing. However, most of teachers or education institutions in Bangladesh dominance only run one activity that is teaching. Guidance and training are lacking once applied in educational institutions. So that the students will only be intellectually smart but no provided guidance and training for a life that will be beneficial to life after plunging in the community.Now a day’s people prefer the quantitative value only, rather than the qualitative value which is the moral values that are beneficial to life. People to get a good report card or GPA, they are willing to do a variety of ways, one of them cheating, deceiving in exams, and so forth. This is a characteristic of people who prefer the value in the form of numbers, not put good moral values. An example is the act of corruption, collusion, and nepotism. They were once given the mandate; they prefer a personal interest than the public interest. That is characteristic of how low moral values in our nation. Whereas with that knowledge mediocre but good in moral values, this nation will prosper, especially with good knowledge and high moral values, no doubt will create a civil nation.
Lack of Moral ValuesThe next question that arises is that why do we need moral education? Moral education is an education to make children become a moral man. This means that moral education is that education is not about teaching academic, but non-academic in particular on how the attitudes and good behaviors every day. Unfortunately, at this time, Bangladesh has been minimal or almost no teachers who teach it. This is, of course, led to the destruction of the students’ morale at this time. Of course, this is one of the teacher’s job to educate their students to become human dignity. In the long run, the lack of moral education encourages people to engage in different unethical and criminal activities. The chances of falling into the darkness immorality for the underprivileged children are massive than that of the normal children. Consequently, immoral persons tend to push the nation backwards.
Moral values of underprivileged childrenUnderprivileged children constitute one of the most vulnerable and marginal groups in Bangladesh. “Underprivileged” is essentially the boys and girls for whom the streets, unoccupied dwellings, wastelands etc., have become homes and/or sources of livelihood, and who are inadequately protected or supervised by responsible adults. Government statistics, based on a survey by the Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies, a little less than half of them (49.2%) are of the age group. The major problems of street children are:
physical and sexual abuse by adults of the immediate community
harassment by law enforcing agencies
no, or inadequate, access to educational institutions and healthcare facilities
lack of decent employment opportunity
