Karakter Eğitimi: Amerika Örneği

Character Education: the Case of America

Öz

Batı’da sanayi devrimi sonrası, toplumların yapısında hızlı bir değişim yaşanırken birçok kurum bundan olumsuz etkilenmiştir. Bu etkileri ortadan kaldırmak için çeşitli çabalar ortaya konulmuştur. Bu çabalardan birisi de okullarda uygulanmaya başlanan karakter eğitimi programlarıdır. On dokuzuncu yüzyılda karakter eğitimi, ABD’de ahlaki değerler, etik ve vatandaşlık eğitimi gibi konularda, özellikle okullarda uygulanan programlar bağlamında, kuşatıcı bir kavram olarak ortaya çıkmıştır. Bu makale, 19. yüzyılın ortalarından itibaren Amerika’da ciddi anlamda tartışma konusu olan karakter eğitimi konusunu incelemektedir. Konuyu Amerikan tecrübesi üzerinden değerlendiren bu çalışmada amaç, modern dünyada değer öğretim yaklaşımlarından birisi olarak karakter eğitimini gerekli kılan nedenleri ve onun geleceğine yönelik tartışmaları teorik bir çerçevede incelemektir. Bu bağlamda konu, karakter eğitiminin tanımı ve amacı, karakter eğitiminin tarihi gelişimi, karakter eğitimini gerekli kılan nedenler ve ABD temelli olarak karakter eğitiminin geleceği şeklinde dört alt başlık altında incelenmiştir.
After the industrial revolution in the West, while a rapid change was lived in the lives of societies, many institutions were affected by this development negatively. In order to eliminate these effects, many attempts have been made. One of the efforts to eliminate these effects was the establishment of character education programs in educational curriculums. Character education was raised in the nineteenth century as an inclusive concept which promoted moral values, ethics and citizenship in educational contexts. This article examines character education which has been discussed seriously since the middle of the nineteenth century in the USA. Character education is elaborated under four subtitles such as the definition and aims of character education, the historical development of character education, the reasons for character education and the future of character education based on the experience of the USA.
