New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday sought responses from the Centre and the Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) on a plea to make `moral science` a compulsory subject in all standards in schools across the country.
An apex court bench comprising Chief Justice H.L. Dattu and Justice A.K. Siki issued notices to the Human Resources Development (HRD) Ministry and the CBSE while hearing a PIL filed by lawyer Santosh Singh.
The petition said that there is a rapid degradation of moral values in the society where `making money anyhow` is the sole motto of life.
It further said the society needs a value-based moral education system by humanizing education and making students global citizens with universal values.
