Many critics in western literature devoted to this approach. This approach is seen indoktrinatif, not in accordance with the development of democracy (Banks, 1985; Windmiller, 1976). This approach is assessed to ignore the rights of children to choose freely their own value. According to Raths et al. (1978) Human life is different because of differences in time and place. We can not predict the corresponding value for generations to come. According to him, every generation has the right to determine their own value. Therefore, the need to be taught to the younger generation rather than the value, but the process, so they can find their own values, according to the place and era. Value investment approach may not fit the nature of Western education that upholds the values ​​of individual freedom.
