Abstract

Human beings, born without having any world knowledge and different from other creatures, learn all the issues concerning how to satisfy their needs after birth. This situation is the same for both satisfying material and spiritual needs. The way these needs are being satisfied is quite important. Being prepared for the future, our youth satisfy their spiritual needs thanks to Religion and Ethics courses. However, as the insufficiency of these courses for the satisfaction of these needs were realized new selective courses have been considered for reinforcement. By considering both students and parents’ needs, new selective courses have been offered that include the other topics that are not included in Religion and Ethics courses and are found to be necessary for students’ spiritual education. Parents have stated favorable opinions on the integration of new selective courses on religion, moral and values in the curriculum. Parents expect their children to have more reliable knowledge on religion with the help of these new selective courses. Furthermore, according to them children will be better equipped for the future problems and better cope with those problems thanks to this reliable knowledge.
