Abstract

Nigeria diverse religion and the government taking away of some schools from churches has done more harm than good. The increase of immoral behaviours among Nigerian youth has posed a lot of hazards to the youths themselves, parents, the teachers and the society in general. The religious men and women that were thus far seen as the fountain of moral up-bringing and upkeep are not left out in this alarming rate of immorality that has besieged the entire nation. In the face of all these immoral behaviours and its attendant consequences, it becomes clear that development is disfigured heavily by these noxious attitudes due to the neglect and/or skeletal teaching of this essential tool for national development. This emaciated teaching of Religious education is among the causes of moral debauchery prime among Nigerian students which has transcended to the larger society. This moral dissipation has resulted to lack of respect for elders and constituted authority, teenage pregnancy, violence, suicide, indolence, reckless killings, armed robbery, insurgence and so on. In the light of the above expressions, this paper tries to diagnose the teaching of ethics and morality education for sustainable development in Nigerian educational system in respect of the concept of ethics and morality, types of ethics, causes of moral degradation, duties of the parents and teachers in imparting morality and ethics to the Nigerian students as well as the challenges facing the teaching of this an all essential subject that stands to cushion the effect of sustainable development in the nation Nigeria. Christian Religious Knowledge, Teachers Duties, Parental Duties, challenges facing teaching of Christian Religion Knowledge
