ABSTRACT:
‘Values’ are socially approved desires and goals that are internalized through a process and become an integral part of individual’s persona which stand him out from the sheep crowd and have the capacity to reflect the ethos of the society. These values are not specific to one person but have a holistic purview i.e. Universal Human Values. The recent widespread of anomie (normlessness) has put question mark on the very concept of ‘Values’ among us. Even the education sector has not been left untouched. A teacher plays an important role in imparting value based lifestyle in the young minds and if the orientation of these teachers is solely towards money making, it will have ripple effect of disaster on the society. From the past 50 years, level of education and literacy has increased with a simultaneous increase in the dishonesty. It can be stated that values have been deeply infected and have congruent impact on behavior and the decision making. To evaluate and to know better understanding of teachers’ value system, the present paper studies 10 variables in two aspects i.e. personal and professional and brings into in to light the value system of teaching profession of 423 teachers working in the colleges of Punjab. The outcome of the study reveals sparkling and interesting results regarding the value system of the college teachers.
