Values serve as standard for political and social interaction among members of a particular group of people. They are manifested in the attitude and behaviour of the people. This study discusses corruption and how it has eroded the core values in Nigeria. The aim is to suggest ways of curtailing the menace through social eduction. The causes of corruption such as crave for political power, pauperism, the desire to acquire material wealth among others were discussed. The study also x-rays the efficacy of the role of social education as a means of curbing corruption in Nigeria. The shortfall of the subject are identified to include the methodology or approache adopted in transmitting the right information to members of the society, the use of non-specialist among others. Against this backdrop, the ministry of education should ensure that only those who specialized in social studies should teach the subject at all level. Ethical issues should be emphasized during the teaching and learning process. Other members of society should undergo social education through well organised seminars and workshop, which should be transmitted in the language of the people for quick assimilation. Essentially, the teacher or instructor should see himself as a role-model.
