Every school and every institution communicates values. Sometimes the values are clear. Sometimes the values are less than clear. Sometimes an absence of values is communicated. Sid Simon reflects on his history with values clarification.
Values clarification has been the centerpin and the joy of my professional life for almost 40 years. I learned values clarification from Louis Raths, my teacher at New York University, in the mid-'50s. Raths lived and breathed values clarification, and his fire and passion affected almost every one of his graduate students. I remember vividly the very first values clarification lesson Raths taught us.
