Exploring the Private and Public Spheres of Values Education in Singapore through a Perception Study

Exploring the Private and Public Spheres of Values Education in Singapore through a Perception Study

Purpose: This paper explores the role of parents and schools in the private and public spheres of values education in early childhood and investigates parents’ perceptions and expectations of their role and the role of schools in their children’s moral and character development. It examines parents’ desired values for children in relation to the refreshed Character and Citizenship Education curriculum that is taught in Singapore primary schools, and other factors of influence that affect early morality. Method: This research project uses a mixed method design that draws upon data from a survey and focus group discussion to investigate values education in the home and school contexts. Using thematic analysis, seven major themes emerge from the findings to reveal parents’ perceptions and expectations of schools in cultivating desired values in their children. Results: The findings indicate that parents see themselves as the first educator of their children and schools play a secondary role in the values education of their children. Overall, parents are satisfied with the quality of values education their children receive. Conclusion: Parents and schools are integral to inculcating values and developing children’s character from young, which points to the importance of establishing a collaborative partnership for effective values education to take place at home and in school.
