• Universality The curriculum on value education must be universally applicable to all human beings notwithstanding any differences. Thus, it aims to promote universal human values.
  • Natural acceptability Openness to any suggestion or principles depends directly upon a person’s natural acceptability. Thus, the methodology adopted for teaching value education must be naturally acceptable as well as verifiable for every student.
  • Reasonability – Every value-based principle must appeal to individual reason in order to make an effective impact on the students mind. Rules and ordinances are compulsive in nature which often face defiance whereas principles appealing to reason are willingly complied with.
  • Versatility – Value education is not merely a subject for learning but its sole intention is to establish the values so learned into every aspect of the life of the learner. Values must make a deep impression on the conscience of a person for their strict adherence.
  • Universal harmony – Value education aims to bring total harmony within and without of individual self. Inner harmony is crucial to maintain moral integrity whereas outer harmony is required for larger social goods such as establishing harmony among every entity within the universe, be it inanimate and animate beings.
