Gandhiji pointed out, education without character leads to criminality, educated persons ahave wider opportunisties to indulges in crime and that too committing them most efficiency and technically. Even our scholarly presedient Dr. A.P.J abdul Kalam calls teachers the “best mind of the nation”. In ancient time, a teacher was pure, society believed equal as God. The process of modernization, westernization and Materialism is eroding the core of human values. The atmosphere of conflict and turmoil, the rate of crime and delinquency ,murder, alcoholism, drug addiction etc has increased. Value education starts not with the students but with the teacher. If the students have to be taught values, first the teacher has to be taught values. If the teacher is not sound in himself, teacher education is an integral component of the educational system. The functions of teacher education is to produce good teachers, the good teacher is one who develop proper value system among children. Teacher education creates necessary awareness among teachers about their new roles and responsibility.
